Scant details so far, but it appears the senator is okay.
It’s been a scary few months for Mr. Paul. He was also on the Capitol Hill softball team that was attacked in June.
From The Hill:
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.
