Paul's absence could cause scheduling issues for home-state colleague Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Boucher lives next door to Paul and his wife, according to Warren County property records. He faces a court date on Thursday.

An arrest warrant obtained by Courier Journal stated that Boucher allegedly "tackled him from behind".
