Republican Sen. Rand Paul suffers assault

US Senator Rand Paul's ribs broken in assault at home

There is a little more information about the attack on Sen. "The unfortunate occurrence of November 3rd has absolutely nothing to do with either's politics or political agendas".

"Two Kentuckians tell me Rand's neighborhood fracas stemmed from a dispute over some sort of planting or flora issue around the properties", Martin tweeted.

The statement did not further describe what precipitated the attack, however.

Paul and Boucher were acquaintances, said Jeremy Hodges, a state police spokesman, who declined to say what led to the incident.

A 17-year next-door neighbor to Sen. Flying is also off limits for the time being.

An arrest warrant obtained by Courier Journal stated that Boucher allegedly "tackled him from behind".

Kentucky State Police said in a news release Saturday that Paul suffered a minor injuries when Boucher assaulted him at his Warren County home in a gated community on Friday afternoon.

Arsenal's Santi Cazorla targets January return after coming close to amputation
A Euro 2008 and 2012 victor with Spain , Cazorla says Arsenal and his former Spain national teammates have been very supportive. Cazorla told Marca , "The doctor told me if I was able to walk with my kid on the garden, I should be thankful".

At the time of the assault, Paul had "trouble breathing due to a potential rib injury", according to a criminal complaint filed in Warren County District Court.

Rene Boucher, 59, of Bowling Green, was arrested Friday and charged with misdemeanor fourth-degree assault. He's also banned from possessing firearms or weapons of any kind.

In a statement Sunday, Paul's chief of staff, Doug Stafford, spoke of the altercation and explained that Paul's injuries included five fractured ribs, three of which are partly or completely cracked.

McConnell said he plans to talk with Paul later Monday.

A news release from Kentucky State Police Post 3 in Bowling Green said troopers were called to the Paul residence at 3:21 p.m. Friday. It was not immediately clear how they knew each other. Both of them walked their little dogs at about a mile and a half circle, a nice little dog trot.

Boucher is a Bowling Green anesthesiologist and pain specialist who developed a product called Therm-a-Vest, a cloth vest partially filled with rice and secured by Velcro straps that is created to relieve back pain by delivering heat directly to the areas of the back where most pain is felt.
