A Bowling Green man was arrested for fourth-degree assault following an incident Friday afternoon at the home of U.S. Senator Rand Paul.

Rene Boucher, 59, is being held in the Warren County Regional Jail in lieu of a $5,000 bond.

The incident was first reported by the Bowling Green Daily News.

A news release issued by the Kentucky State Police post in Bowling Green didn’t provide details of the incident, but said Paul suffered minor injuries.

Senator Paul’s communications director, Kelsey Cooper, issued a statement saying that Paul was “blindsided and the victim of assault.”

She added that the Senator was “fine” and the incident is now a matter for police.
