Senator Rand Paul was a victim of a home invasion assault in his Bowling Green home Saturday afternoon, sustaining what police describe as ‘minor injury.’
The Bowling Green Daily News reports reported Paul spokesman Kelsey Cooper said in a statement, “Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault. The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police. Senator Paul is fine.”
Local reporter Daniel Pike, with the The Bowling Green Daily News, tweeted the Kentucky State Police statement regarding the assault.

Dr. Boucher is an anesthesiologist (retired), osteopath, and inventor who lives in a nearby neighborhood, according to publicly available records. He is currently being held in the Warren County Region Jail.
The Bowling Green Daily News adds:
Boucher is a Bowling Green anesthesiologist and pain specialist who developed a product called Therm-a-Vest, a cloth vest partially filled with rice and secured by Velcro straps that is designed to relieve back pain by delivering heat directly to the areas of the back where most pain is felt.
Boucher applied for a patent for the vest in 2003 and has marketed it through the QVC shopping channel.
