Rand Paul Is 'tackled From Behind And ATTACKED By His Democrat Voting Doctor Neighbor While Mowing The Lawn At His Home In Exclusive Kentucky Gated Community'

Rand Paul's neighbor has been arrested after he allegedly assaulted the Senator while he was mowing the lawn of his Kentucky home.

Kentucky State Police said in a news release Saturday that Paul suffered a minor injuries when 59-year-old Rene Boucher assaulted him at his Warren County home in a gated community on Friday afternoon.

The release did not provide details of the assault or the nature of Paul's injury. In a statement, Paul spokeswoman Kelsey Cooper said the Republican senator is 'fine.' 

The statement said Paul was 'blindsided' by the assault but she did not provide further details.

Neighbors told local TV station WAVE that the pair share a corner adjacent to their homes and have been in the midst of a feud. 

Boucher allegedly ran onto Paul's property and tackled him from behind. 

According to the arrest warrant the Republican politician suffered injuries to his face and had trouble breathing because of a blow to the ribs.

The FBI is also investigating to see if the assault is politically motivated. Online records state that Boucher's party affiliation is Democrat.

Online real estate sites say Paul's home is worth around $500,000.  

It is believed Boucher is an acquaintance of Paul's.

The charge of fourth-degree assault is a Class A misdemeanor and he could face up to a year in prison.

According to the Bowling Green Daily News, Boucher is an anesthesiologist and pain specialist who developed a product called Therm-a-Vest.

It is a cloth vest partially filled with rice that is supposed to help with back pain.

He once marketed the product on the QVC shopping channel. 

In May, Boucher posted on his Facebook page about Trump 'bullying' NATO leaders and an article about and Congressman Greg Gianforte assaulting The Guardian’s Ben Jacobs in Bozeman, Montana.
