Update: The Senator’s injuries are worse than initially insinuated by his team as AP reports 5 broken ribs.
Details are currently slim surrounding the alleged assault of Kentucky’s junior Senator Rand Paul. The crime occurred in Paul’s yard while he was mowing it. The suspect has been arrested and charged with 4th degree assault, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to 12 months in jail.
Rene Boucher, 59, of Bowling Green, allegedly “blindsided” the Senator, causing cuts to his face and possibly injuring his ribs. Though the Senator complained of trouble breathing after the incident, his spokesperson said, “Senator Paul is fine.”
“Senator Rand Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault,” Kelsey Cooper, Paul’s Kentucky communications director, said in a statement. “The assailant was arrested, and it is now a matter for the police. Senator Paul is fine.”
After Paul reported the assault, the Warren County Attorney’s Office issued an arrest warrant and a trooper arrested Boucher soon after, police said.
Boucher remained held Saturday in the Warren County Regional Jail.
