LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Rene Boucher, the man accused of assaulting Rand Paul at the Kentucky senator's Bowling Green home, has been formally charged and will plead guilty.

The DOJ said that Paul suffered "multiple fractured ribs."

Boucher signed a plea agreement, but no court day has been set for sentencing. Below is the information charging Boucher and his plea agreement.
