Watch: Here’s what we know about the neighbor who attacked Rand Paul

Glenn Beck

What happened?

A neighbor assaulted Sen. Rand Paul while he was mowing his lawn on Friday at his home in Kentucky.

Yikes. Was he injured?

Yes. The senator suffered five fractured ribs and lung contusions.

Who was the angry neighbor?

Rene Boucher, 59, was arrested Friday evening and booked for fourth-degree assault and has since been released on bail. While the motive for the attack hasn’t been officially confirmed, a Facebook page believed to be Boucher’s follows social media posts from Occupy Democrats and frequently posts anti-Trump and anti-Republican rhetoric.

Glenn’s take:

Glenn compared attacks on Republican lawmakers to an example from history: anti-war activist John Jacobs, who used violence to try to overthrow the government.
