It's still unclear exactly what sparked the altercation, although one neighbor told a local news outlet that the two had "ongoing problems". Paul told police that his neighbor, Boucher, came onto his property and "tackled him from behind, forcing him to the ground and causing pain".

Hodges said Boucher would have faced more serious charges if had he used a weapon or if Paul had been injured seriously.

According to the release, Boucher was arrested by Trooper Bartley Weaver and charged with assaulting Paul, who has been Kentucky's junior senator since 2011.

A Warren County official did not immediately respond to an AP request for a copy of the arrest warrant.

Paul was wearing headphones while mowing his lawn in Bowling Green, Kentucky, when he was attacked from behind by Rene Boucher, 59, on Friday, two sources said.
