From the Herald-Leader

A donor to U.S. Rep. Andy Barr physically confronted a staffer for the Kentucky Democratic Party outside a Lexington event Wednesday evening for the Republican congressman.

The staffer, who the Democratic Party declined to identify, was standing on a sidewalk while recording video outside the event hosted by Louis Hillenmeyer.

The video, described by the party Thursday in a news release and posted on YouTube, starts focused on the ground while a man’s voice is heard asking if he should shoot the staffer or set his dogs on him. Then it shows Hillenmeyer approach the staffer and tell him to leave. When the staffer stays put, Hillenmeyer grabs the camera.

“If you break that, that’s assault sir,” the staffer said.
