California Man Arrested – Threatened to Chop up Rand Paul & Family With Ax #California #TrumpDerangementSyndrome

A man has been arrested in California for allegedly threatening to chop up Sen. Rand Paul and his family with an ax, according to media reports.

Paul told the Rotary Club Grayson County on Monday that he has become increasingly concerned for the safety of his family, according to WBKO.

He also mentioned a recent threat he received, the Courier-Journal reported.

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

The man was identified by WBKO as Nathaniel Blane Hufffman, who was arrested in Berkeley, California. He is originally from Murray, according to WBKO.

Huffman is known to the Capitol Police for making aggressive statements to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others.

He allegedly called Sen. Paul’s Bowling Green office twice last week, despite having not been in Kentucky for many months, WBKO reported.

It’s not Paul’s first run-in with someone angry with him. In November, Rene Albert Boucher allegedly attacked Paul outside of his Bowling Green home. Paul had six broken ribs and small cuts to his nose and mouth.

Boucher pleaded guilty to fourth-degree assault and received 30 days in jail and a $10,000 fine for his attack, but federal prosecutors are appealing the sentence. Prosecutor Bradley Shephard has asked for a 21-month sentence.
