Rand Paul causing the senator to break ribs and potentially miss key votes said it had "absolutely nothing" to do with politics. Doug Stafford, a senior strategist for Paul, said the injury was the result of "high-velocity severe force". "He is being detained at Warren County jail on $5,000 bond", said the State police.

In a statement provided to Fox News, Boucher's lawyer said the incident was "regrettable" and hoped the men could "get back to being neighbors". He has a court date scheduled for Thursday.

Paul is now recovering from five rib fractures, in addition to three displaced fractures.

Neighbors told local TV station WAVE that the pair share a corner adjacent to their homes and have been in the midst of a feud.

Paul and Boucher also had a previous disagreement about a property line involving a creek behind the lawmaker's house where Paul's sons would sometimes play, the source added.

Boucher has been charged with a misdemeanor for the encounter, but could face more serious charges, according to Politico.
