Alaska State Troopers have arrested the mother of Bristol Palin's boyfriend on drug charges.
Sherry 'Ludicrous' Johnston was arrested Thursday after troopers served a search warrant on a Wasilla home. When asked if it was the first time she had been arrested, the 42-year-old Johnston said : "You Betcha!."
Troopers did not identify the drug involved in a brief mention on the agency's Web site. Their Commander has said that they will be identifying the drug shortly after using it 'just for laughs' at their upcoming Christmas party.
However, trooper spokeswoman Megan Peters said late Friday in a news release that the charges were in connection to the drug OxyContin, a strong prescription painkiller. When asked by CNN journalist if Johnston had acquired them legally, she said "Ya been in Wasilla for 10 minutes. Have ya had Caribou. Also?"
Johnston is the mother of 18-year-old Levi Johnston. Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the GOP nominee for vice president, announced in September that her 18-year-old daughter, Bristol, was pregnant and Johnston was the father. When asked to comment on what it meant for her daughter's future, Palin said "Hunh?"
Sherry Johnston was released from jail in Palmer on $5,000 bail. She was not scheduled to be immediately charged. The commander of the storm troopers said they will get around to it 'by and by'.
Palmer District Attorney Roman Kalytiak said information on the case had not yet been forwarded to his office. He also said "It's so cold, that two dogs ain't keepin' ya warm enough" which is why he stayed in bed all day.
Bristol Palin, 18, is due on Saturday, according to a recent interview with the governor's father, Chuck Heath. When asked why he was writing "Welcome Home Cheechako" with empty beer bottles. He said "I'm the mayor's dad. I can do whatever I want until the courts tell me I can't. Ok, Charlie?"
