(Newser) – Sarah Palin’s Iraq-bound 19-year-old son, Track, was addicted to the painkiller OxyContin and binged on cocaine before joining the army last year, the National Enquirer reports. The supermarket tab also claims the Alaska governor kicked 17-year-old daughter Bristol—also supposedly a party animal—out of the house and made her switch schools when she learned of the teen's unexpected pregnancy.

“I’ve partied with (Track) for years. I’ve seen him snort cocaine, snort and smoke OxyContin, drink booze and smoke weed," a source told the tabloid, adding Track also convinced other boys to steal for him. "He finally did what a lot of troubled kids here do, you join the military.” (Read more OxyContin stories.)
