Sen. Rand Paul Says 6 Ribs Broken, Water In Lungs After Altercation

Rand Paul

Stafford said Paul's injuries were caused by "high velocity severe force". He said Paul was mowing his yard and had stopped to remove a limb when 59-year-old Rene Boucher, Paul's neighbour for 17 years, tackled him from behind, slamming him to the ground. But Porter said in all the years he has known Paul, he has never heard him mention Boucher or any type of yard issue with his neighbour.

The Run-UpThe podcast that makes sense of the most delirious stretch of the 2016 campaign. He said Paul is in considerable pain and having trouble getting around.

The damage was severe.

Paul said a final report revealed six broken ribs and a pleural effusion - excess fluid around the lungs - which is worse than the five broken ribs reported Monday from the attack. Our neighborhood is fortunate that the Pauls live here.

But the spectacle of the incident - one former doctor attacking another in broad daylight - was altogether different.

"We don't have squabbles out here", said Jackie Douglas, a neighbor of the two men. "The reason for Mr. Boucher's freaky attack is known only to him". He now lives alone, neighbors said. "Paul is doing well and that these two gentlemen can get back to being neighbors as quickly as possible".

The sale was disclosed in a legal filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which can be accessed through this link . Wells Fargo & Co. reaffirmed a "market perform" rating on shares of Apple in a research note on Friday, September 9th.

Paul is now recovering from the attack in Kentucky.

The dispute between Paul and his neighbor, who is a Democrat, allegedly arose over yard care and not Paul's politics, according to neighbors who spoke to The New York Times. But they said the dispute had more to do with long-simmering tensions over their adjacent properties than politics.

"They were just needing to satisfy themselves that going forward that there would not be any security issues", Baker said. "I think it had very little to do with Democrat or Republican politics", said Jim Skaggs, the gated community's developer.

CNN previously reported that Boucher was charged with one count of fourth-degree assault.

"The stories of a 'landscaping dispute, ' or a dispute of any sort between Rand Paul and Rene Boucher are erroneous and unfounded", he said in an email. Doug Stafford, Paul's senior adviser, called the case a "serious criminal matter involving state and federal authorities". Paul writes on Twitter on November 8: "I appreciate all of the support from everyone". Records show he was released from jail on Saturday on a $7,500 bond. He is set to appear in court on Thursday. Boucher is also barred from possessing firearms.

While neighbors largely said Boucher kept to himself and would smile and wave on occasion, one resident, who sits on the board of the Home Owners Association and who requested anonymity, said it isn't the first time they had heard he exhibited aggressive behavior toward someone in the area. The officer could also take evidence to a grand jury to seek an indictment against Mr. Boucher.
