Suspect in Rand Paul assault pleads not guilty

Suspect in Rand Paul assault pleads not guilty

Rand Paul of Kentucky says he ended up with six broken ribs after a weird attack by his neighbor last week while he was mowing his lawn.

Earlier this week, U.S. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said Paul would return next week.

Rene Boucher allegedly tackled Paul, breaking six of his ribs and sustaining bruised lungs.

Boucher faces up to a year in jail if convicted on the charge.

The suspect's attorney Matt Baker issued a statement to WKU Public Radio saying the dispute was "trivial" and in no way politically motivated.

"Last week, Sen. Paul was vigorously assaulted by someone in his neighborhood", Stafford said.

Rene Boucher, 59, waived the formal reading of the charge at a hearing in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Warren County Attorney Amy Milliken said by telephone.

It was initially reported that Paul had five broken ribs and small cuts to his nose and mouth after the November 3 attack. The first "conversation" with the attacker came after Sen. This was not a 'fight, ' it was a blindside, violent attack by a disturbed person.

Boucher is next due in court November 30 for a pre-trial hearing.

"I appreciate all of the support from everyone", the 54-year-old lawmaker tweeted with his medical update.

The game will also feature iconic characters from the mainline story, though what role they will play remains undetermined. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter , as the first novel released in the United Kingdom on June 26, 1997.

The New York Times reported Monday that the argument began over landscaping, but the senator's later tweeted Wednesday two reports questioning the article.

Warren County prosecutor Amy Milliken didn't provide any more details but said her office is working with Kentucky State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Citing unnamed sources, Fox News reported on Thursday that Paul had been told federal charges could be filed in the case, which could indicate that politics was behind the incident.

Paul had dismounted from a riding lawn mower when Boucher, a retired anesthesiologist who lives next door, ran up and tackled him, the newspaper said.

"As to reports of a longstanding dispute with the attacker, the Pauls have had no conversations with him in many years", he continued.
