  • Rand Paul says he suffered 6 broken ribs in bizarre attack

Rand Paul and breaking six of his ribs pleaded not guilty in Kentucky court on Thursday, amid intensifying speculation over what led to the assault.

Rene Albert Boucher, 59, is accused of tackling Paul and was charged with fourth-degree assault, according to court documents.

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.

He faces a maximum penalty of a year in jail if convicted.

"Last week, Sen. Paul was vigorously assaulted by someone in his neighborhood". Skaggs, another neighbor who sold both men their homes, did not witness the attack but has said that Sen. "Anyone claiming otherwise is simply uninformed or seeking media attention". A pretrial hearing was set for November 30.

Paul writes on Twitter Wednesday: "I appreciate all of the support from everyone".

Sen. Paul is still recovering from the incident and is not expected back soon in Washington after suffering six broken ribs and bruising as well as fluid-buildup in and around his lungs. "The unfortunate occurrence of November 3rd has absolutely nothing to do with either's politics or political agendas".

Baker added that Boucher has been interviewed by US Capitol Police, who he said were interested in whether the incident was politically motivated.

"Prosecutors will review our case in its entirety and they'll make a determination if it will be bumped up to felony", Jeremy Hodges, master trooper and public affairs officer for Kentucky State Police Post 3 at Bowling Green, told Fox News on Monday. "As to reports of a longstanding dispute with the attacker, the Pauls have had no conversations with him in many years. It was a very regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial".
