KSP says the investigation is ongoing. He is an ophthalmologist who has practiced in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where he moved with his wife in 1993. Paul was seen by a doctor Friday, the warrant said.

According to a statement by the Kentucky State Police, troopers were called to Paul's home about 3:30 p.m. local time Friday, where officers determined Boucher had intentionally assaulted Paul.

Boucher is an anesthesiologist and pain specialist, according to the Bowling Green Daily News. It's a cloth vest partially filled with rice and secured by Velcro straps that is created to relieve back pain by delivering heat directly to the areas of the back where most pain is felt. Its goal is to relieve back pain by delivering heat straight to the affected areas.

WBKO, a Bowling Green TV station, broke the news Saturday afternoon. It was unclear if Boucher has an attorney, and he could not be reached for comment late on Saturday.

Police were not immediately clear on why Boucher allegedly assaulted Paul.

State Police Master Trooper Jeremy Hodges told The Associated Press that he couldn't reveal any other details of the assault because of security issues.
