Suspect Pleads Not Guilty In Attack On Republican Senator Rand Paul

"It has nothing to do with politics", Baker added.

The injuries to US Senator Rand Paul during an assault by a neighbour are worse than earlier reported, with the Kentucky Republican saying he suffered six broken ribs and has fluid in his lungs.

Warren County prosecutor Amy Milliken didn't provide any more details but said her office is working with Kentucky State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He says it was a disagreement between two neighbors.

"Last week, Sen. Paul was vigorously assaulted by someone in his neighborhood". He showed no emotion and kept his head down during the brief proceeding.

Boucher was released from jail on a $7,500 bond the day after the attack and ordered to stay away from the senator and his family, his neighbors for 17 years.

He's accused of tackling Paul, his longtime neighbor, while mowing his lawn on Saturday.

Warren County Attorney Amy Milliken said the suspect faces a possible 12-month sentence as well as a $500 fine for fourth-degree assault.

Paul tweeted links on Wednesday to stories from Breitbart News and the Washington Examiner that "report" that the attack was entirely politically motivated by Sen. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Warren County on Thursday. "This is a serious criminal matter involving serious injury, and is being handled by local and federal authorities", Doug Stafford, a senior adviser to the 54-year-old senator, said in a statement.

The ongoing mystery is what led to the assault. "Paul's ribs were broken", Stafford told CNN on Thursday. Boucher's attorney has called it "a very regrettable dispute" that was "trivial".

"Prosecutors will review our case in its entirety and they'll make a determination if it will be bumped up to felony", Jeremy Hodges, master trooper and public affairs officer for Kentucky State Police Post 3 at Bowling Green, told Fox News on Monday.
