ALERT! Capitol Police Arrest Man Who Tried To Kill Rand Paul And His Family

By

Senator Rand Paul on Monday thanked the Capitol police for arresting the man who tried to kill him and his family.

“Thank you to the US Capitol Police for their arrest of the man who recently threatened to kill my family and me,” Senator Paul tweeted.

As reported by courier-journal.com

The man has been arrested. He allegedly called in the threats to Paul’s Bowling Green office.

Paul mentioned the attack publicly at an event in Litchfield, Kentucky, on Monday.

“Capitol Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man who threatened to kill me and chop up my family with an axe,” Paul said. “It’s just horrendous that we have to deal with things like this.”

Capitol Police declined to comment because the investigation is ongoing.

This marks one of several threats and attacks Paul has had in the last year. More than a year ago, Paul was on the baseball diamond when James Hodgkinson opened fire and shot several congressional staffers as well as Rep. Steve Scalise, a Louisianna Republican.

Paul was unscathed.

Glad you are safe Senator!
