Sen. Paul suffers minor injury in assault at home

Rene Albert Bousher 59 was arrested and charged with 4th degree assault against Rand Paul

According to a statement, KSP troopers were called to the Republican U.S. senator's house in Bowling Green before 3:30 p.m Friday "in reference to a report of an assault".

The release did not provide details of the assault or the nature of Paul's injury.

Kentucky State Police said on Saturday that Paul and Boucher were acquaintances.

Kentucky State Police Master Trooper Jeremy Hodges said he could not release details of the assault because of security issues.

A witness who is one of Paul's neighbors says that Boucher and the senator have been immersed in an ongoing feud. "Senator Paul is fine".




It is not known why Boucher was in his home at the time.

"The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police", Cooper's statement continued. He is charged with fourth-degree assault with a minor injury. That is a misdemeanor. "Thank you for your thoughts and prayers", Paul said on Twitter on Sunday morning, referring to his wife.

According to the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure, Boucher is a retired physician, as of February, 2015. But more, recently Paul has emerged as a leading defender of Trump's policies and has golfed with the president at Trump's Virginia golf course.

Robert Porter, a friend of Paul's, said that the senator was mowing his lawn moments before the attack.

Boucher is an anesthesiologist and pain specialist, according to the Bowling Green Daily News.
