    Default Rand Paul assaulted at Kentucky home (UPDATE: 6 broken ribs)

    http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/3..._xlfM.facebook

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

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

    Doug Stafford said it is unclear when Paul will return to work since he is in considerable pain and has difficulty getting around, including flying. Stafford said Sunday that the broken ribs include three displaced fractures, which can lead to life-threatening injuries. The severe pain can last for weeks or months.

    According to Google, he's a DO in Bowling Green?
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Kentucky State Board of Election voting records list Boucher as a registered Democrat. A person with the same name also works as an anesthesiologist in Bowling Green.

    A local paper called him Dr. We'll see - early reports are often jumbled and confusing.

    I think it is the D.O.

    Even though this article..

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ted/832663001/

    ...only indicates the reporter looked up address based on name, here is a customs ruling about the therm-a-vest verifying that's the docs address:

    https://www.customsmobile.com/ruling...c_id=NY+K81661

    And you can see the Dr. looks older in this photo:



    So it that image is around 2003, which is when the customs ruling is dated, I'm guessing Danno's photo is 20 years or so outdated. In which case the mugshot may be him. I do think the cheek lines look similar.
    What now?

    Seriously, Rand’s a small guy. I hope he’s alright.

    If this turns out to be the anesthesiologist and their kids had indeed known each other previously, it might just have been a heated argument about some apolitical stuff.

    On the flipside, if an anesthesiologist actually wanted to seriously harm somebody, he probably wouldnt use violence but rather drugs/poison.

    They're neighbors. They've been having a feud. Rand was mowing the grass.

    WAVE 3 News has confirmed Boucher and Paul are neighbors.
    A neighbor told Wave 3 News affiliate WNKY said that Paul was mowing his lawn at the time of the assault.
    According to the neighbor, Senator Paul and Boucher have had ongoing problems. Senator Paul and Boucher share a corner adjacent to their homes.


    Senator Paul's communications director issued the following statement:
    "Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault. The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police."

    According to KSP, after they got to Paul's house, they determined Rene Boucher intentionally assaulted Paul, causing a minor injury.
    Boucher, 59, of Bowling Green was arrested and charged with one count of Fourth Degree Assault. That is a misdemeanor.
    According to the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure, Boucher is a retired physician, as of February, 2015. He was licensed in 1998.

    Boy, when you get fixated on a subject, no matter how irrelevant it may be to the rest of the known universe, it just consumes your whole reality. Doesn't it?

    Don't look now, kahless, but your beer went flat because it's for open borders for Muslims. And your electric bill is due because the power company is for open borders for Muslims. And the weather outside is not a perfect 72 degrees for you because it's for open borders for Muslims. Deal.

    Had nothing to do with politics...A second neighbor told local news station WNKY said that the Senator was mowing his lawn around 3 p.m. on Friday when Boucher assaulted him. The neighbor also confirmed that the two share a corner adjacent to their homes and have been embroiled in an ongoing feud.
