Boucher, 59, of Bowling Green was charged with one count of fourth-degree assault. He is the son of former U.S. Representative Ron Paul of Texas.

According to the arrest warrant obtained by WKBO and the Bowling Green Daily News, Paul told police that his neighbor walked onto his property and tackled him from behind, forcing him to the ground. He sold and appeared alongside his invention on QVC, the home shopping channel.

While a motive is not officially known, Jeff Jones, a registered nurse who worked with Boucher at the Bowling Green Medical Center, described Boucher's politics as "liberal".
