BOWLING GREEN, KY — U.S. Republican Senator Rand Paul sustained serious injuries Friday after reportedly being assaulted by his neighbor, 59-year-old Rene Boucher, also of Bowling Green.
Senator Paul was apparently mowing his grass when Boucher approached and assaulted him, according to another neighbor who told the media that the two had an ongoing feud.
Boucher was arrested and charged with fourth degree assault at the Warren County Detention Center. He could face additional charges.
The beating caused Senator Paul to be admitted to the hospital with multiple rib fractures.
