US Senator Rand Paul's ribs broken in assault at home

Rand Paul of Kentucky, authorities said Saturday. Rand Paul was more seriously injured than previously reported in an attack by his neighbor at Paul's Bowling Green home on Friday.

Boucher got arrested for tackling Paul while he was mowing the lawn. "They are also prominent members of the local medical community and worked together when they were both practicing physicians", lawyer Matthew J. Baker said.

One of the Facebook pages used by Boucher says that he is graduated from the College of Osteopathic Medicine in Des Moines who is a former U.S. Army pain management specialist and in 1984. Boucher was charged with fourth degree assault. But by Sunday, it emerged that Paul's injuries are more serious than first thought.

Kelsey Cooper Paul's Kentucky-based communications director said about the senator that he "was blindsided and the victim of an assault".

Paul was left with "minor injuries", including five broken ribs and "considerable pain".

"This type of injury is caused by high velocity severe force".

"He's in some pain, but he's going to be fine", Robert Porter, Pual's friend said and added that Paul's come back to Washington will be a "game-time decision" but Paul is preparing to turn to work at some time in the following days.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says fellow Sen.

Boucher admitted to the crime and was released on Sunday on a $5,000 bond.

Paul reportedly told police that Boucher tackled him from behind.

According to the arrest warrant the Republican politician suffered injuries to his face and had trouble breathing because of a blow to the ribs.

The motivation for the assault was not clear. Online records state that Boucher's party affiliation is Democrat. The two had previously been seen having "heated discussions" about political issues, including healthcare. Police arrested 59-year-old Rene Boucher and charged him with misdemeanor fourth-degree assault with a minor injury.

Boucher is a Bowling Green anesthesiologist and pain specialist who developed a product called Therm-a-Vest, a cloth vest partially filled with rice and secured by Velcro straps that is created to relieve back pain by delivering heat directly to the areas of the back where most pain is felt.

It is a cloth vest partially filled with rice that is supposed to help with back pain.

Boucher applied for a patent for the vest in 2003 and has marketed it through the QVC shopping channel.
