- The Latest on U.S. Sen.

A man has been arrested and charged with assaulting and injuring Rand Paul.

The second-term Republican senator from Kentucky and 2016 presidential candidate was attacked, allegedly by a next-door neighbor, Rene Boucher, 59, who was charged with fourth-degree assault. Stafford said this type of injury is marked by severe pain that can last for weeks to months.

According to the arrest warrant, Boucher walked onto Paul's property and tackled him from behind, forcing him to the ground.

"Senator Paul and Kelley appreciate everyone's thoughts and well wishes and he will be back fighting for liberty in the Senate soon", Stafford said in his statement Sunday.

"He's in some pain, but he's going to be fine", Robert Porter, Pual's friend said and added that Paul's come back to Washington will be a "game-time decision" but Paul is preparing to turn to work at some time in the following days. He has a court date scheduled for Thursday.

'The unfortunate occurrence of November 3 has absolutely nothing to do with either's politics or political agendas, ' said Matthew Baker, an attorney for Rene Boucher, Paul's 59-year old neighbor.

"Displaced rib fractures can lead to life-threatening injuries such as: hemopneumothorax, pneumothorax, pneumonia, internal bleeding, laceration of internal organs and lung contusions", Stafford said.

Boucher was released from jail Saturday on a $7,500 bond. He said the two men have been neighbors for 17 years and worked together when they were both practicing physicians.

Paul reportedly told police that Boucher tackled him from behind.

Hodges said Boucher would have faced more serious charges if had he used a weapon or if Paul had been injured seriously.

The motivate for the assault is not yet known.

An automated phone system at the jail did not provide access to lawyer information for Boucher.

According to the Bowling Green Daily News, Boucher is an anesthesiologist and pain specialist who developed a product called Therm-a-Vest.

He once marketed the product on the QVC shopping channel.
