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

A man was arrested and charged with assaulting and injuring Rand Paul.

Boucher's attorney told CBS News in a statement that the "unfortunate occurrence of November 3rd has absolutely nothing to do with either's politics or political agendas". Kentucky State Troopers said the neighbor, Rene Albert Boucher, "intentionally assaulted" the senator.

His neighbor, Rene Boucher, 59, was charged with one count of fourth-degree assault causing minor injury and has since been released on bond, Reuters reports.

The attack left the Republican with five broken ribs, lung contusions and injuries to his face.

NY has dominated the all-time series of late, winning seven straight meetings since being edged by the Rams 15-14 in 2001. Goff threw three touchdowns in the first half, finishing with 311 yards passing in arguably his best game as a pro.

The motivate for the assault is not yet known.

"This type of injury is caused by high velocity severe force", Stafford said in a statement to Fox News. It did note that Boucher and Paul have been next-door neighbors for 17 years, and said that the two, both physicians, had worked together when they were both practicing.

"Two Kentuckians tell me Rand's neighborhood fracas stemmed from a dispute over some sort of planting or flora issue around the properties", Martin tweeted.

It isn't clear when Paul will return to work since he is in considerable pain and is having difficulty getting around.

Boucher allegedly tackled Paul from behind and forced him to the ground, according to the arrest warrant.

At the time of the assault, Paul had "trouble breathing due to a potential rib injury", according to a criminal complaint filed in Warren County District Court. An automated phone system at the jail did not provide access to lawyer information for Boucher.

Paul reportedly told police that Boucher tackled him from behind. He sold his invention on QVC, the home shopping channel.

The Daily Caller noted that Boucher had been a registered Democrat and shared a post from his Facebook page "citing left-wing academic Noam Chomsky's criticism of the Republican party". Both Capitol Police and the FBI are investigating the incident.

TMC's powerful leader Mukul Roy joins BJP
Roy had earlier said that he had resigned from TMC because he was not happy with the way things were being conducted in TMC. The Congress said Roy had a compulsion to join the BJP as he had been an accused in both the Saradha and Narada scams.

The FBI is assisting state and local authorities to see whether there were any violations of federal law, but an FBI spokesman declined to comment Monday on a possible motive.
