Sen. Rand Paul on Monday announced his return to Capitol Hill via Twitter, saying he's returning to work despite still being "in a good deal of pain."

Paul cracked six ribs and suffered a long contusion after allegedly getting attacked by a neighbor in Kentucky, the circumstances of which remain a mystery.

Rene Boucher pleaded not guilty late last week to 4th degree misdemeanor assault for allegedly blind-side tackling the Republican in his own yard after mowing his lawn.

Boucher's lawyer has said the altercation was over something trivial; recent reports have said that trivial matter was over landscaping disagreements between Paul and Boucher, something an aide to Paul refuted last week.

"As to reports of a longstanding dispute with the attacker, the Pauls have had no conversations with him in many years," Doug Stafford, Paul's senior adviser, said last week.
