Rand Paul’s Neighbor Pleads Not Guilty to Assaulting Rand
The county prosecutor in the case against Rene Boucher, the man accused of assaulting Sen. Rand Paul, says criminal charges may be changed because of the severity of Rand's injuries.
Warren County prosecutor Amy Milliken didn't provide any more details but said her office is working with Kentucky State Police and the FBI. She says the investigation "has not concluded."
Boucher pleaded not guilty to fourth-degree assault this morning. Boucher is accused of attacking the senator while he mowed his lawn.
Rand suffered six broken ribs and has excess fluid around the lungs.
It is unclear when he will be able to return to Washington D.C.
