    It was only a matter of time before this presidential campaign literally came to blows.

    That's what a top aide to Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul alleges happened Thursday night between him and an aide to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

    John Yob, Paul's national political director, says he was in a bar on Mackinac Island, Mich., where Republicans are preparing for the state GOP's annual Republican Leadership Conference on the island. Yob says he encountered Rich Beeson, Rubio's deputy campaign manager, who Yob claims punched him in the face.

    Here's Yob's Facebook post recounting the incident:

    Conservative Michigan blogger Brandon Hall said he witnessed the event, describing it like this on his blog:

    "As I was sitting at the bar talking to someone at Horn's in Mackinac Island Thursday night, I witnessed Beeson suddenly, out of nowhere, approach one of Rand Paul's advisers, John Yob — unprovoked — and try to hit him. Beeson missed a full on shot but still struck Yob in the face with a powerful blow near the jaw."

    The Detroit News obtained security footage of the incident:

    Political people getting arrested for throwing punches is insulting....

    I'm ok with them beating the crap out of each other....there are many thing they should be arrested for instead.

    What a pussy. Barely got hit. I'm surprise he didn't have a rape whistle and sounded the alarm.

    I was expecting a better punch...

    The guy that slapped the other guy will claim that he was walking by and someone yelled a (racial, homophobic, classist, fashionist) slur and he was just responding to being provoked.
