Rand Paul

The neighbor of US Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) may get charged with felony assault, after Paul was reportedly hospitalized with five broken ribs, three out of alignment. The attack allegedly took place as the senator was at home mowing his lawn.

Kentucky State Police Master Trooper Jeremy Hodges said Monday that new developments in Senator Paul’s injuries could lead to a felony charge against Rene Boucher, the neighbor who reportedly tackled Paul at his Bowling Green residence on Friday, according to the Washington Post.

“It requires serious physical injury in order for someone to be charged with a felony,” Hodges said. “Our arresting officer will submit his completed case report and then the prosecutors will make a decision about whether to upgrade those charges.”

The five broken ribs included three displaced fractures, which could cause a fatal wound to the heart and lungs, Paul’s senior advisor Doug Stafford told the Associated Press on Sunday. Pain from the rib injuries is severe and can last for weeks or months, according to AP.

Paul has bruised lungs, and the injuries could lead to pneumonia, Fox News reported Monday.

Boucher, a 59-year-old retired anesthesiologist, currently faces a misdemeanor charge for fourth-degree assault. The criminal complaint said Paul, 54, was having “trouble breathing due to a potential rib injury,” according to the Post.

A court date for Boucher has been set for Thursday. He has been out on a $7,500 bond since Saturday, AP reported. Boucher is under court order not to have any contact with Paul, his family or offices, or procure any firearms or any kind of weapon, the Post reported, according to Warren County-provided bond paperwork.

Paul was allegedly wearing headphones when he was attacked while mowing his lawn, according to Fox News.

Paul is a libertarian-leaning, conservative Republican, who recently shared the spotlight with President Donald Trump during the signing ceremony of an executive order cutting back portions of Obamacare, formally known as the Affordable Care Act. Paul and Trump have played golf together, but have also butted heads over details of key policies, including the current tax reform effort.

Boucher is a registered Democrat, according to the Daily Caller. Despite the political differences of the next-door neighbors, Boucher’s attorney says Friday’s altercation was not related to politics.

Attorney Matthew J. Baker told the Washington Post that the incident stems from “a very regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial.”

Baker also said that the two men have worked together. Paul is an ophthalmologist.

Paul’s injuries may keep him away from the Senate at a time when his vote may be critical for the GOP and Trump as they aim to pass tax cuts by the end of the year.

    More H8TE from the fascist left

    • Why would I think that you work as a political character assassin?

  • dav1bg

    anesthesiologist? Not a guy I would want to trust my life with. I hope he loses his license.

    • darkhorse

      there’s more going on here, Dav, than meets the eye…just can’t figure it out at the moment…are they disappearing Rand for a while? If so, why?

      • Patrick J. Herbert

        The only reason I can think of is in relation to the Federal Reserve; however, Rand and his father have been quite vocal about that foreign controlled private entity for years now, especially in regards to an audit. Why wait until now to get Rand out of the way? Maybe this has to do with the new Fed chair (Powell) in some way.

        I agree with you, though. There is something fishy about this whole thing. Really hoping for the best for Rand. When it comes to challenging the Federal Reserve from the inside, he is all that we have!

        • darkhorse

          yes…this mighty cabal of international JEWISH BANKERS is one huge problem…a massive cancer in the body of America that needs to be cut out now if we the people are to survive much longer…Was just listening to Brother Nathanael, whom I love! talking about the 3 Israels and he show’s a clip of Leiberman speaking of NATO and Israel being the HEART of NATO… so much work needs doing ASAP as we’re in critical mass now…

    Another wack job democrat resorting to violence because they can’t cope with their inability to rationally discuss the issues. Par for the course.
    More often than not it seems that the right has to defend themselves against the violence perpetrated by the left, like with antifa, BLM, that guy who shot at the republicans who were playing baseball, all those rioters who were beating and assaulting Trump supporters, etc, etc.
    Not that it doesn’t happen the other way around, but that is the exception, not the norm. And it certainly doesn’t help that the media is encouraging them to commit violent acts and incite violence.

    Paul better get a concealed carry permit. One less dem no big deal.

    • If Paul lived in the United States, he wouldn’t need a concealed carry permit, which would infringe on his right to keep and bear arms under the Second Amendment.

    • Dav Shultz

      Actually, one less dem is a good start!

  • Mike

    one more reason all democrats, aka the left, need to be put on an island in the middle of no where with no way out. they are a danger to all of humanity.

      MAGA= Make Alcatraz Great Again!

  • Jimmy Yost

    I wonder if the guy was on some kind of SSRI drug like Prozac or Paxil. Or maybe Rand Paul was doing the guy’s wife and he found out about it. Either way we’ll probably never find out.
