Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky)

From The Hill, 3:33 PM, November 4, 2017:

Kentucky State Police have arrested a man accused of assaulting Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) at his home in Bowling Green, the senator’s office confirmed on Saturday.

“Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault,” Kelsey Cooper, a spokeswoman for Paul, said in a statement. “The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police. Senator Paul is fine.”

The suspect was identified as 59-year-old Rene Boucher of Bowling Green, according to a statement from police. The Warren County Attorney’s Office issued a warrant for Boucher’s arrest shortly after the assault on Friday.

Police are investigating the assault, according to the statement. Boucher has been charged with 4th degree assault, causing a minor injury.

Spokeo says that Rene Albert Boucher, 59, lives at 582 Rivergreen Ln, Bowling Green, KY 42103, is unmarried and a Caucasian.

Confusingly, both U.S. News and World Report and Healthgrades says Dr. Rene Boucher is an anesthesiologist at Medical Center at Bowling Green, Kentucky, who is 59 years old and female.

According to Heavy.com:

  • Senator Paul’s attacker is a man named Dr. Rene Boucher, an anesthesiologist who retired in 2015.
  • Boucher is a registered Democrat, an advocate for gun control and healthcare reform who’s been severely critical of the Republican Party on Facebook since Trump became president.
  • Paul and Boucher are neighbors.
  • Boucher “ambushed” Paul while the senator was mowing his lawn.
  • Neighbors say Paul and Boucher “had an ongoing feud.”
  • Boucher is being held at Warren County Regional Jail in lieu of a $5,000 bond. If convicted, he could face a year in prison of the Class A misdemeanor. Warren County Attorney Amy Milliken said Boucher could face extra charges, based on the injuries suffered by Paul.
