58-year old Kentucky man charged with assaulting Sen. Rand Paul

Rene Boucher signed a plea agreement Friday for the attack on the Republican senator in Kentucky according to J Minkler US Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana

He said Mr. Boucher is "very meticulous" about how he maintains his property, while Mr. Paul "has a little bit of a different approach".

Federal prosecutors will ask a judge to impose a sentence of 21 months in prison in connection with the November 3 attack at a gated community in Bowling Green, Kentucky, court documents showed.

"Assaulting a member of Congress is an offense we take very seriously", U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler said.

Police said Boucher charged and tackled Paul, 54, in the yard of his Bowling Green, Ky. home on November 3. "Those who choose to commit such an act will be held accountable".

Authorities say Boucher was enraged and "had enough" after Paul supposedly stacked lawn waste on a pile near his yard.

Boucher is charged with assaulting a member of Congress resulting in personal injury, which is a felony under federal law.

Boucher faces up to 10 years' imprisonment and a fine of up to $250,000, according to the US attorney. However, the claim that the attack was the result of a lawn-care dispute seemed like a stretch given that, according to Rand Paul, there was no argument or discussion of any kind prior to the tackle.

The attack against Mr. Paul, a Republican, was not politically motivated, Mr. Baker said, adding that it was "a matter that most people would regard as trivial".

But Boucher told investigators that was not the case.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., speaks to reporters on Capitol Hill on Thursday, Jan. 18, 2018. Paul had recently said he broke six ribs during the altercation but "each day I feel a little bit better".

The senator's office did not respond to a request for comment.
