Rand: At­tack in­ex­cus­able

New York Post - - NEWS - Mark Moore

Sen. Rand Paul said there is “no jus­ti­fi­ca­tion” for the at­tack out­side his Ken­tucky home that left him with six bro­ken ribs and a dam­aged lung.

“There is no mo­tive that would jus­tify hit­ting some­body from be­hind and break­ing their ribs and dam­ag­ing their lungs, so no, there is no jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for some­thing like that,” Paul told the Wash­ing­ton Ex­am­iner in his first in­ter­view since the Nov. 3 as­sault.

Paul, who re­turned to the Se­nate on Mon­day, was do­ing yard work at his Bowl­ing Green home when he was tack­led from be­hind, al­legedly by neigh­bor Rene Boucher.

Po­lice have not re­leased a mo­tive for the at­tack.

Al­though re­ports claim they were feud­ing over grass clip­pings, Paul said he hasn’t talked to Boucher in 10 years.
