The neighbor who attacked US Sen Rand Paul ‘lost his temper’ over yard debris on the property line between their homes before the altercation, a court filing in the federal case against him reveals.
Dr. Rene Boucher is asking a judge to grant him probation after pleading guilty to tacking the Republican politician in Bowling Green, Kentucky, last year and breaking six of his ribs.
Prosecutors are seeking a 21-month prison sentence for the 59-year-old.
A sentencing memorandum filed on Friday by Boucher’s attorney says Paul repeatedly placed ‘unsightly’ yard debris near the property line.
On the day before the November 3 attack, Boucher burned some debris left by Paul, according to the document obtained by the Daily News of Bowling Green.
The next day, Paul placed more debris on the spot where the pile had been burned, it says.
Boucher has pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress and is scheduled to be sentenced Friday.
