ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) Sherry Johnston was arrested Thursday after Alaska State Troopers served a search warrant on a Wasilla home. She's been charged with six felony drug counts and freed on $5,000 bail.
Troopers did not identify the drug involved in a brief mention
on the agency's Web site. But a police spokeswoman says in a
statement released late Friday that the charges are in connection
to the drug OxyContin, a strong prescription painkiller.
Johnston is the mother of 18-year-old Levi Johnston. Alaska Gov.
Sarah Palin, who was the GOP nominee for vice president, announced
in September that her 18-year-old daughter, Bristol, is pregnant
and that Johnston is the father.
