Rand Paul's neighbor pleads not guilty to breaking Republican senator's ribs

Friend: Rand Paul Attack Was Property-Related

The man accused of tackling U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and breaking his ribs as he was mowing his lawn pleaded not guilty on Thursday to a misdemeanor assault charge, a court official said.

Dr. Rene Boucher, Paul's 59-year-old neighbor, appeared in Warren County Circuit Court Thursday before Judge Brent Potter. Alicia Stivers says Paul called her husband right after the attack, said he feared Boucher might return, and that he had called police. "Paul is doing well and that these two gentlemen can get back to being neighbors as quickly as possible", read the statement.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) speaks at a press conference about the latest Republican Effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S. September 25, 2017. The prosecutor adds that Kentucky State Police and FBI are investigating more serious charges and the possibility of federal and state felony charges. This was not a 'fight, ' it was a blindside, violent attack by a disturbed person. A pretrial hearing was set for November 30.

Paul tweeted Wednesday night, "I appreciate all of the support from everyone". "The unfortunate occurrence of November 3rd has absolutely nothing to do with either's politics or political agendas".

The New York Times, citing neighbors and Republican lawmakers familiar with the incident, reported that the assault stemmed from a landscaping dispute.

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

"A medical update: final report indicates six broken ribs & new X-ray shows a pleural effusion".

Boucher's lawyer said Monday that the attack was "a very regrettable dispute" that was "trivial".

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.

Paul and Boucher have been neighbors for 17 years in a gated community in Bowling Green.
