Palin's Husband Was Arrested In 1986 For DUI

Todd Palin, the husband of John McCain's running mate Sarah Palin, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in 1986, CBS News confirms.

The Christian Broadcasting Network, which broke the story of Todd Palin's 1986 arrest, reports that Palin was behind the wheel of a truck in the small southwestern Alaska town of Dillingham when he was pulled over and arrested for the DUI.

Palin was 22 years old at the time of his arrest.

The news of Todd Palin's DUI arrest comes on the same day that Sarah Palin announced her 17-year-old daughter Bristol is pregnant.
