A man is accused of threatening to chop up U.S. Sen. Rand Paul and his family with an ax.
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 Leitchfield, 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.
