AUDIO: US Senator Rand Paul calls 911 to report attack by neighbor

Stark County Ohio marked with a red pin and the city of Memphis

Preliminary investigation showed 59-year-old Rene Boucher of Bowling Green intentionally assaulted Paul, breaking several ribs.

The audio, obtained and released by Kentucky CBS affiliate WLKY following a FOIA request, reveals a measured Paul explaining to 911 operators that he was "assaulted by a neighbor" and that he requested police presence to "investigate and talk to the neighbor".

Boucher has been formally charged with assaulting a member of Congress resulting in personal injury, which is a felony. The attack left Paul with six broken ribs, cuts on his face and fluid buildup in his chest.

As the announcement from the Justice Department sums it up, "Boucher allegedly witnessed the victim stack brush onto a pile near the victim's property and 'had enough.' Boucher ran onto the victim's property and tackled the victim".

The document, posted Monday, also makes clear that the attack was not politically motivated.

Minkler has said the charge is one "we take very seriously". "It just became ... a point of frustration that boiled over". "Paul takes a different approach", Baker said.

Baker said Friday that he will argue against incarceration in Boucher's case. Paul has since said he's recovering well from the attack.

He has since signed a federal plea agreement, but as of yet no date is now set for his guilty plea for the attack on Paul, according to US attorney for the Southern District of Indiana Josh J. Minkler.

Paul was mowing his lawn in Bowling Green, Ky., at the time of the attack.

Boucher has signed a plea agreement in the case, but as of the announcement of the charges on Friday no court date for a guilty plea had been set. Boucher "executed a running tackle", according to court documents, injuring the senator, who according to court documents didn't hear the attack coming. A close friend of Paul's said the senator had gotten off his riding lawn mower to remove a limb when he was tackled from behind. Paul has said he never saw the attacker because he was facing downhill and wearing ear protection from the noise of his lawn mower.

Paul noted then that he hasn't spoken to Boucher in approximately ten years.

Minkler's office was assigned the case after a USA attorney in Kentucky recused himself. He has pleaded not guilty to that charge.
