Police in Alaska have released audiotapes and photographs which document a 20-person brawl involving the family of former governor Sarah Palin at a party in Anchorage last month.
At the time, Mrs Palin, aka Mama Grizzly Bear (yes, really), took to Facebook to say she was proud of her daughter Bristol, who reportedly punched the party's host in the face repeatedly during the fracas.
Amid what sounds like a scene of utter chaos (police said some alcohol was involved), Sarah Palin's voice can be heard in the background, mostly urging her children not to "cuss" in front of the officers.
At one point, the former Republican vice-presidential nominee is completely bowled over by the fact that her son Track managed to find his necklace, describing the moment as "such a God thing".
Warning: These clips are a very NSFW (i.e. very, very sweary with racial slurs), so it's probably best to pop your earphones in...

WAS HE THE GUY WITH THE CAMEL HAT?!
