Paul recovering from 5 broken ribs — APNewsBreak

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

There is a little more information about the attack on Sen.

"Senator Paul has five rib fractures including three displaced fractures", Doug Stafford, a senior adviser to Mr Paul, said in a statement reported by United States media.

"The unfortunate occurrence of November 3 has absolutely nothing to do with either's politics or political agendas", a statement by attorney Matthew Baker said.

Police charged his neighbor, 59-year-old Rene Boucher.

Hodges said Paul's injuries were minor and did not require transport to a hospital.

Paul's neighbor got arrested after he allegedly assaulted the Senator while he was mowing the lawn of his Kentucky home - in an attack that left Paul with five broken ribs. On Sunday, Paul was recovering from five broken ribs, including three displaced fractures, after he was assaulted by the attacker who tackled him from behind at his home. Paul and his wife, Kelley, "appreciate everyone's thoughts and well wishes and he will be back fighting for liberty in the Senate soon", Stafford said.

"It was a very regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial", it read, one which apparently had "nothing to do with" politics.

Doug Stafford said it is unclear when Paul will return to work since he is in considerable pain and has difficulty getting around, including flying.

After the incident on Friday, Paul told police that Boucher had come onto his property and tackled the senator from behind, "forcing him to the ground and causing him pain", according to the criminal complaint.

Boucher was booked into the Warren County Regional Jail.

"Paul didn't get any severe injuries to his face", Robert stated that Paul did not get any face injuries and he did not discuss his assault to media.

Boucher applied for a patent for the vest in 2003 and has marketed it through the QVC shopping channel.

The Kentucky State Police told Fox News they are still running an active and open investigation and just learned of Paul's condition. Online records state that Boucher's party affiliation is Democrat.
