Rand Paul says he suffered 6 broken ribs in freakish attack

Boucher's only words were "yes sir" as he replied to a judge during the arraignment Thursday, keeping his head lowered and showing no emotion, according to ABC News.

The man who allegedly assaulted GOP Sen. Rand Paul, pleaded not guilty in court Thursday to breaking six of the Kentucky Republican's ribs.

Boucher's charges could go up if it turns out Paul's injuries, which have forced him to miss Senate work, turn out to be worse, Milliken said.

Boucher, Paul's neighbor, is charged with fourth-degree assault causing minor injury, for which he faces up to a year in jail if convicted. The judge set a pre-trial court date for November 30.

Matt Baker, the attorney for the 59-year-old Boucher, said he's hopeful a federal charge isn't brought against his client.

The Times also referenced "long-leveled allegations that Mr. Paul had disregarded neighborhood regulations". "Paul's ribs were broken", Stafford told CNN on Thursday.

A pleural effusion "is the build-up of excess fluid between the layers of the pleura outside the lungs", according to the Cleveland Clinic. She says the senator told her that Boucher mentioned that he had been trying to sell his house for ten years and that Paul's trees were in the way. There was no change to the charges and no change in bond.

Dr. Rene Boucher admitted to police that he tackled Paul from behind while he was mowing his lawn last Friday.

"It was absolutely and unequivocally not about politics, not about right verses left and not about Democrat versus Republican", Baker said.

Boucher's attorney has called the situation "a very regrettable dispute" that was "trivial". "We sincerely hope that Senator Paul is doing well and that these two gentlemen can get back to being neighbors as quickly as possible".
