A neighbor told NBC affiliate WAVE of Louisville that the two men have had ongoing problems and that Paul was mowing the lawn at the time of the assault.

State police wouldn’t confirm those details. They said that the FBI was involved in the investigation but that it will be led by the trooper who made the arrest.

Paul thanked supporters on Sunday via his official Twitter account.

CORRECTION (Nov. 4, 10:27 p.m.): An earlier version of this article misstated the relationship between Paul and Boucher. They are acquainted with each other, according to the police; it is not the case they had never met.
