U.S. Senator Rand Paul has been awarded over $580,000 in damages and medical expenses following an attack by his neighbor in late 2017.
Paul brought a lawsuit against his neighbor who tackled him in their upscale Kentucky Bowling Green neighborhood over lawn maintenance. The attack left Paul with several broken ribs, according to the Associated Press.
According to the Associated Press, the jury awarded Paul $375,000 in punitive damages, $200,000 for pain and suffering, and $7,834 in medical expenses.
The attorney for Rene Boucher, Paul’s neighbor, said they plan to file an appeal.
