November 5 - U.S. Senator Rand Paul expressed gratitude to supporters on Sunday after police said he was assaulted at his Kentucky home on Friday afternoon by a neighbor and suffered minor injuries.

Rene Boucher, 59, was released on bond after being charged with one count of fourth-degree assault causing minor injury, authorities said on Saturday.

The Bowling Green Daily News, citing an arrest warrant, said Paul told police his neighbor came on to his property in a gated community just east of Bowling Green and tackled him from behind. The Republican lawmaker, 54, had injuries to the face and trouble breathing because of a rib injury, the newspaper said.

It was not clear what motivated the altercation and Paul did not go to the hospital, police said. Paul was mowing his lawn at the time of the attack, television station WAVE-TV in Kentucky reported.
