Dakota Meyer’s home has been broken into the day after he suffered an anxiety attack – while his ex Bristol Palin has been celebrating buying her sixth home.
It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Meyer.
Just days after his now ex-wife Bristol Palin announced their divorce had been finalized, he ended up in hospital with a panic attack. The following day, his Kentucky home was burgled and his SUV was stolen.
Police believe the suspect is Shawn Christy, 27, who has previously threatened to kill Meyer, as well as President Donald Trump.

On Thursday, he revealed his Kentucky home had been broken into and his jeep had been stolen
Surveillance footage showed the suspect using a sledgehammer to enter the home, where Meyer’s younger brother has been living, through a back window.
Once inside, he stole food from the refrigerator, and took the keys to a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee which he fled in.
The FBI are hunting Christy who is considered armed and dangerous but no arrests have been made. Cops have sent fingerprints taken from the scene to see if they match with Christy’s.
Trooper Nicholas Hale told Radar that Christy, of McAdoo, Pennsylvania, was probably hoping to have caught Meyer at home when he broke in.
But the former Marine, who shared a photo of a news story about the break-in at his home on Instagram, and says he wished he had been there.

The break-in came a day after Meyer shared a photo of himself in a hospital bed with the caption ‘pit stop before work’ on his Instagram story.
He added the hashtag ‘#anxietyisreal.
The Iraq veteran, who is second-youngest living Medal of Honor recipient, has previously talked about his struggles with anxiety and suicidal thoughts after the military.
Meanwhile, his ex Palin is having a much happier time.
On the same day Meyer suffered a panic attack, the 27-year-old, who is due to appear on the upcoming season of Teen Mom OG, was celebrating buying her sixth home home in as many years.

Palin has moved around a lot over the past few years. In February this year, she moved from Alaska, where she had been spending time with her family following the announcement of their divorce, back to Texas.
She and Meyer first moved to Austin in early 2017 as way to ‘meet in the middle’ between Alaska and Mayer’s home state of Kentucky to raise their family.
Last week, Palin revealed that she and Meyer are divorced, five months after DailyMail.com first broke the new that Meyer had filed papers to terminate their marriage in Travis County District Court.
During an Instagram Q&A, a fan asked: ‘Are you dating,’ to which Palin replied: ‘freshly divorced & single forever lezzbereal (I am not ready to date).’
The oldest of Sarah Palin’s three daughters later said that she does not see herself walking down the aisle again at this time, while noting that the number one question people ask her is whether or not she is married.
Meyer followed her Q&A with his own, where he revealed that he was ‘happily divorced’ and had no plans to ever marry again.
The 30-year-old also hinted that Palin was to blame for their split.
Bristol Palin, who has two daughters with Meyer, announced their divorce last week (the family is picture together earlier this year)
Meyer opened up on Instagram about his recent divorce and offered relationship advice to his followers, telling them to know when ‘enough is enough’
When asked by one follower for advice about going through a divorce, Meyer said: ‘Know when enough is enough’.
‘Take it one day at a time and focus on you. Everything is just a moment in time. You can try everything and give the person all you have and if they don’t choose to see good in you it’s out of your control,’ he said.
One follower asked bluntly why Meyer and Palin had divorced, to which he said: ‘She wasn’t happy with me so it’s for the best.’
When asked if he would one day remarry, Meyer said bluntly: ‘Hell no.’
He also posted a photo of his hand to prove he no longer wears his wedding ring.
Bristol’s relationship with Dakota has been rocky to say the least. The pair got engaged during a Rascal Flatts concert in Las Vegas in early 2015, planning a wedding in Kentucky.
But less than a week before the ceremony, Bristol announced the wedding would not take place, and instead of tying the knot, she set off on an RV trip in Alaska with an exotic model.
Teen Mom producers announced last month that Palin had joined the case of the popular reality series. She has two daughter Sailor and Atlee Bay with Meyer, as well as a 9-year-old son Tripp from her relationship with fiancee Levi Johnston
A month later she announced she was pregnant with Sailor Grace, although she initially refused to say whether Dakota was the father.
She admitted that her second out-of-wedlock pregnancy was ‘a huge disappointment to my family’.
‘I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy,’ Bristol said.
‘Everyone knows I wanted more kids, to have a bigger family. Believing I was heading that way, I got ahead of myself. Things didn’t go as planned, but life keeps going on.’
Sailor Grace, was born on December 23, 2015, and the couple went through a custody battle after the birth, with Sarah Palin shaming her now son-in-law when he asked for child support in court papers.
‘For many months we have been trying to reach out to Dakota Myers [sic] and he has wanted nothing to do with either Bristol’s pregnancy or the baby,’ Sarah told Entertainment Tonight in a statement after learning about Dakota’s child support request.’
She then said that Meyer was just trying to ‘save face.’
Bristol’s rep also released a statement, saying: ‘My values are such that a real American hero doesn’t ask for child support.’
Six months after Sailor’s birth, Bristol and Dakota surprised everyone by revealing they were married.
