Bristol Palin's future mother-in-law arrested on drug charges

It's been a tough week for the Palin family. You'll remember last Friday, Governor Palin's church was heavily damaged due to a blaze that appears to have been intentionally set.

Now there's news today that daughter Bristol's future mother-in-law, Sherry Johnston, has been arrested on six felony drug counts.

Levi's Mom

Ms. Johnston, the mother of Levi Johnston, who was launched into the spotlight at the Republican National Convention last September, was arrested yesterday afternoon "at the conclusion of an undercover narcotics investigation," according to an Alaska State Trooper report.

Johnston has since been released on a $5,000 unsecured bond.

No comment

Governor Palin's reaction? She's not discussing it, yet.

"This is not a state government matter," Palin spokesman Bill McAllister told the Anchorage Daily News. "Therefore the governor's communications staff will not be providing comment or scheduling interview opportunities."

No news yet on what types of drugs are involved or the amount as that could jeopardize the investigation according to the newspaper.

Some good news

It's not all bad news for the two families, however. Bristol and boyfriend Levi's baby is due tomorrow.

Great-grandfather-to-be Chuck Health (Sarah's dad) told Grandparents.com that the two will have a boy.
