Rand Paul spoke out on Monday for the first time since being attacked by his neighbor 10 days ago, saying in an interview that there's "no justification" for the attack.

Paul suffered six broken ribs and pleural effusion - a buildup of fluid between the tissues that line the lungs and chest - and continues to have trouble speaking and breathing.

Neighbors have said Paul continually violated the rules of the Rivergreen community, a gated subdivision in Bowling Green, Kentucky, adding he grew pumpkins and had a compost pile. Porter said Paul was wearing ear protection, so he did not hear the attack coming.

"From my perspective, I'm not really too concerned about what someone's motive is". Rand Paul has hired a personal injury lawyer as the court case involving a dispute with a longtime neighbor is ramping up.

The Kentucky lawmaker hired a personal-injury attorney more than a week after a weird fight with his neighbor that left him with six broken ribs and a lung condition-a scuffle that still doesn't have a clear motive.

Boucher has pleaded not guilty to fourth-degree assault, but federal charges may be coming if it is determined that Paul was attacked for his political views.

"Really if you told me he was doing it for some noble cause to feed starving children somewhere, there is no motive", the senator said. "My first encounter was basically being hit in the back", he said.

He said in the statement he hoped Paul was recovering and that the fight was a "regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial". Robert Porter, Paul's close friend of 20 years, said the senator had gotten off his riding lawn mower when he was tackled from behind. "We've never had words over anything, we've never had a dispute or discussion or words".
