The Lexington police have just announced that they’ve served Tim Profitt — Rand Paul’s former Bourbon County coordinator — with a criminal summons for assaulting a MoveOn activist outside of the Kentucky Senate debate last night.
“Today, October 26, 2010, detectives identified the suspect, involved in the assault, as Tim Profitt,” reads a statement from public information officer Sherelle Roberts. “Mr. Profitt is currently being served with a criminal summons ordering him to appear before a Fayette County District Court Judge.”
The victim, Lauren Valle, claims that the attack — during which she was pulled to the ground and stomped, resulting in a concussion — was premeditated.
