The man accused of assaulting Rand Paul might face more serious charges

The two men had not spoken in several years and a rift between the pair possibly stemmed from Boucher's distaste for Paul's politics, as well as those of his father, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul, a source said. Paul was reportedly tackled while he was mowing the grass at his home in Bowling Green, Ky.

Rene Boucher has been charged with assaulting Sen. "They are also prominent members of the local medical community and worked together when they were both practicing physicians", lawyer Matthew J. Baker said.

Boucher's attorney released a statement on Monday alleging the dispute had "absolutely nothing to do with either's politics or political agendas" and was merely "a very regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial". Paul's Communications director made this statement when he was assaulted at his Warren County.

"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. 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. But by Sunday, it emerged that Paul's injuries are more serious than first thought.

"Displaced rib fractures can lead to life-threatening injuries such as: hemopneumothorax, pneumothorax, pneumonia, internal bleeding, laceration of internal organs and lung contusions", said Doug Stafford, the senior adviser, in a statement. Pain from the rib injuries is severe and can last for weeks or months, according to AP.

It's unclear when Paul will return to work.

"It's potentially a challenge" any time a Republican senator is absent from the Senate, McConnell added, because his caucus isn't "always totally in lockstep", The Associated Press reported. He has a court date scheduled for Thursday.

According to the release, Boucher was arrested by Trooper Bartley Weaver and charged with assaulting Paul, who has been Kentucky's junior senator since 2011.

The Blaze, Glenn Beck's online news site, told readers on Sunday that FBI investigators believed "the attack, which occurred Friday afternoon, was politically motivated".

The Daily Caller noted that Boucher had been a registered Democrat and shared a post from his Facebook page "citing left-wing academic Noam Chomsky's criticism of the Republican party".

Boucher, of Bowling Green, is charged with fourth-degree assault with a minor injury. The two had previously been seen having "heated discussions" about political issues, including healthcare. He is being held at Warren County's jail on $5,000 bond.

Online real estate sites say Paul's home is worth around $500,000.

According to the Bowling Green Daily News, Boucher is an anesthesiologist and pain specialist who developed a product called Therm-a-Vest.
