Sen. Rand Paul was “blindsided” during an assault in his Bowling Green, Kentucky, home on Friday, his spokesman said Saturday.
The senator and former contender for the GOP presidential nomination suffered minor injuries and is “fine,’’ said Kelsey Cooper, his communications director.
“Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault,’’ Cooper said. “The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police.’’
Boucher, who also lives in Bowling Green, was busted at 3:20 p.m. on a charge of fourth-degree assault with bail set at $5,000.
Someone named Rene Boucher lives in a gated neighborhood just west of Paul’s home, the Bowling Green Daily News reported. The suspect is charged with fourth-degree assault, which could land him in jail for as long as a year, the newspaper reported.
