Rand Paul Attack Was Over 'Trivial' Matter

Police in Bowling Green, Kentucky, arrested one of the senator's neighbors who is accused of tackling him from behind at Paul's home.
Rand Paul's absence while recovering from an assault in which his neighbor is charged creates another challenge in what's become a daily "Maalox moment" while trying to keep together his slim Republican majority. Rand Paul with five broken ribs may have been the result of a landscaping dispute.
The charge is a misdemeanor, but Kentucky State Police spokesman Jeremy Hodges told Fox News "it is up to commonwealth prosecutors" whether Boucher's charges could change to a felony, depending on the severity of Paul's injuries.
The release did not provide details of the assault or the nature of Paul's injury.
Rene Boucher has been charged with assaulting Sen.
Paul managed to throw Boucher off of him and they exchanged words, sources said. Boucher is seen here in a photo from the Warren County Regional Jail. The severe pain can last for weeks or months.
"It is not clear exactly how soon he will return to work, as the pain is considerable, as is the difficulty in getting around, including flying", Doug Stafford, a senior adviser, said on Sunday.
Citing Stafford, The Associated Press reports that displaced fractures such as the ones the senator suffered "can lead to life-threatening injuries".
It was unknown to them whether diplomacies were an impulse for the assault, in accordance to an older aide to the senator, who spoke on the status of anonymity because the aide was not commissioned to converse regarding the episode.
Paul made his first public comments since the incident on Sunday, tweeting that his wife "Kelley and I appreciate the overwhelming support after Friday's unfortunate event. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers". Boucher allegedly tackled Paul from behind and forced him to the ground, according to the arrest warrant.
Boucher, a doctor, was released on a $7500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday, the NYT reported.
