ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska state troopers have arrested the
mother of Bristol Palin's boyfriend on drug charges.
Sherry L. Johnston was arrested Thursday after troopers served a
search warrant on a Wasilla home. The 42-year-old Johnston has been
charged with six felony drug counts.
Troopers did not identify the drug involved in a brief mention
on the agency's Web site.
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.
Sherry Johnston was released from jail in Palmer on $5,000 bail.
