Rand Paul Returns To Washington Following Assault

Posted: Updated:
Sen. Rand Paul is returning to Washington following an attack in his yard that left him with six broken ribs.
     Paul posted a message on his Twitter account on Monday saying he is returning to work in the Senate despite being in a good deal of pain. 
     Paul was attacked Nov. 3 while mowing his lawn. Police have charged Rene Boucher with misdemeanor assault. Boucher pleaded not guilty during a court hearing last week.
     Boucher and Paul have been neighbors for 17 years. Boucher's attorney said the attack was motivated by a trivial dispute but has not elaborated. Paul's senior adviser said the senator had not had a conversation with Boucher in years.
     Paul tweeted he will be ready to move forward with tax cuts in the coming days.
