The Alaska State Trooper in the middle of Gov. Palin's "troopergate" investigation had been suspended for bad judgment, including tasering his 19
year old stepson and twice drinking alcohol in his cruiser.
In 2006, state investigators found Wooten guilty of "a significant pattern of judgment failures," including using a Taser on his 10-year-old stepson
and drinking beer while operating a state trooper vehicle. Wooten was suspended for 10 days as "a last chance to take corrective action."
A more serious allegation states that Wooten threatened to kill Palin's father.
