Senator Rand Paul Assaulted in Kentucky
Kentucky State Police have revealed that on Friday they responded to Sen. Rand Paul’s residence in Bowling Green at 3:21 p.m.
Troopers say that upon arrival, they found that a man had intentionally assaulted the senator causing minor injury.
The suspect was arrested and charged with one count of fourth-degree assault and taken to the Warren County Detention Center.
Public records show that the suspect is Rene Albert Bousher, a 59-year-old white male. He was booked on November 3 (Friday), at 8:51 pm. Bond was set at $5,000.
Unverified: Dr. Rene A. Boucher is a retired anesthesiologist.
The county seems to have misspelled his name at intake.
Rene Boucher attended New Bedford High School in Massachusetts and graduated as part of the class of 1976.
About 12 years ago, he snagged a coveted spot on QVC to sell his patented invention called Thermavest / Therm-a-Vest (rice-filled vest for pain management) with the help of his wife Lisa.
Speculation is that this assault is a neighborhood dispute turned heated.
Rand Paul himself is a doctor who graduated from the Duke University School of Medicine.
