KSP troopers responded to Paul's home in Warren County at about 3:21 p.m. Friday in reference to a report of an assault, according to the news release. He is charged with fourth-degree assault with a minor injury. He was being held in custody in lieu of a $5,000 bond as of Saturday afternoon, according to the jail's website.
Paul, Kentucky's junior senator since 2011, was present at the congressional baseball practice shooting in June that seriously injured U.S. Rep.
Kentucky State Police Master Trooper Jeremy Hodges said he could not release details of the assault because of security issues.
Hodges said Boucher would have faced more serious charges if had he used a weapon or if Paul had been injured seriously.
