An aide for Sen.

Rand Paul has been told to expect federal charges against his socialist neighbor who attacked the Republican senator last week, Fox News' Shepard Smith reported on Thursday. She says she doesn't know of any history of property disputes between Paul and Boucher.

"As to reports of a longstanding dispute with the attacker, the Pauls have had no conversations with him in many years", Doug Stafford, Paul's senior adviser, said as he referred to the neighbor, Rene Boucher, 59, of Bowling Green. The first "conversation" with the attacker came after Sen.

While Dr. Boucher only faces a misdemeanor charge at the moment, he could potentially face both felony and federal charges as the investigation progresses. "Anyone claiming otherwise is simply uninformed or seeking media attention". Rand Paul of Kentucky says he ended up with six broken ribs after a freaky attack by his neighbor last week while he was mowing his lawn. Paul's ribs were broken. "This is a serious criminal matter involving serious injury". Rand Paul tweeted on Wednesday that his most recent medical checkup showed six broken ribs and fluid buildup in his chest.

In a report Monday evening, The New York Times spoke with neighbors and three Kentucky Republicans familiar with what had transpired.

Boucher is a retired anesthesiologist and has lived next door to Paul for 17 years. Alicia Stivers says Paul called her husband right after the attack, said he feared Boucher might return, and that he had called police.
