Rene Boucher pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of assaulting his longtime neighbor while Paul was mowing his lawn last week.

Paul, who may be unable to serve in the Senate for months while recovering at his Bowling Green home, was not at the hearing Thursday.

A pleural effusion "is the build-up of excess fluid between the layers of the pleura outside the lungs", according to the Cleveland Clinic.

Boucher was released from jail on a $7,500 bond the day after the attack and ordered to stay away from the senator and his family, his neighbors for 17 years. Baker also told the TV station that politics was not a motivating factor in the dispute.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) speaks at a press conference about the latest Republican Effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S. September 25, 2017. She says the senator told her that Boucher mentioned that he had been trying to sell his house for ten years and that Paul's trees were in the way.

He continued: "The first "conversation" with the attacker came after Sen. Anyone claiming otherwise is simply uninformed or seeking media attention".

Stuart Sears , Schiller's lawyer, said versions of his client's leaked testimony "are blatantly false and misleading". Trump's bodyguard Keith Schiller has been by the side of the real estate tycoon and president through thick-and-thin.


Boucher is next due in court November 30 for a pre-trial hearing.

Paul tweeted Wednesday night, "I appreciate all of the support from everyone".

The senator additionally appeared to hint at his side of the incident Wednesday, retweeting news stories that pushed back on earlier reports that the alleged assault was the result of a dispute over landscaping.

Boucher's lawyer said Monday that the attack was "a very regrettable dispute" that was "trivial".

Though the State Police was unable to provide Fox News a timeline for when their investigation will be complete, a spokesman said "it is up to Commonwealth prosecutors" whether Boucher's charges could change from misdemeanor to felony based on the severity of those injuries.

Paul had dismounted from a riding lawn mower when Boucher, a retired anesthesiologist who lives next door, ran up and tackled him, the newspaper said.
