U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, represented by Kerrick Bachert Attorney, Thomas N. Kerrick, was awarded more than $580,000 in damages and medical expenses on Wednesday in his lawsuit against Dr. Rene Boucher, who assaulted him and broke several of his ribs in a dispute over lawn maintenance.

A jury in Bowling Green, Kentucky, deliberated less than two hours before delivering the award to the Republican lawmaker who had been attacked while doing yard work at his Kentucky home.

Paul had testified during the three-day trial that he feared for his life as he struggled to breathe after Boucher slammed into him in their upscale Bowling Green neighborhood in late 2017.

The jury awarded $375,000 in punitive damages and $200,000 for pain and suffering, plus $7,834 for medical expenses.
