Retired anesthesiologist Rene Boucher pleaded not guilty in court today for attacking his next door neighbor Sen. Rand Paul. Dr. Boucher was charged with fourth degree assault which carries a possible one year jail sentence.
However the charges may be upgraded to a felony due to the severity of the injuries. Sen. Paul revealed that he actually has SIX rib injuries and hemothorax around his lung. That was some tackle. The FBI is also investigating since this was an attack on a federal public official.
Too bad the senator and the anesthesiologist are not on speaking terms anymore. Since Boucher is a pain specialist, he could have given him a few intercostal blocks to ease his pain. But I don't think Sen. Paul will be inviting his neighbor over for beer and basketball games anytime soon.
