Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was assaulted at his Bowling Green, Kentucky home, a spokeswoman for the Senator confirmed.
Kentucky State Police arrested Rene Bousher, a 59 year-old white male that is reportedly a registered Democrat. Bousher was charged with 4th degree assault, causing a minor injury to the conservative Senator.
“Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault,” Kelsey Cooper, a spokeswoman for Paul, told The Hill. “The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police. Senator Paul is fine.”
Paul was also a player at the Congressional Baseball Game in July, where Rep. Steve Scalise was critically injured by a gunman.
