Paul, Kentucky's junior senator since 2011, was present at the congressional baseball practice shooting in June that seriously injured U.S. Rep.

They said the senator suffered a minor injury.

Boucher is charged with one count of fourth-degree assault causing minor injury, KSP said, a misdemeanor.

Rand Paul at his Bowling Green, Kentucky, home, authorities said.


Police released few details about the assault or what led to the confrontation between Paul and the 59-year-old suspect arrested in the incident. "Paul was seeking medical help for his injuries, the warrant said".

Investigations into the reasoning behind Paul's assault are still underway.

Paul, an ophthalmologist, dropped out of the race for president in February 2016 and successfully ran for re-election as a senator. "Congressperson Paul is fine".

Boucher is being held on $5,000 bail.
