Yesterday it was reported in the media that Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky received a “minor injury” after an attack by a neighbor.
Well, it turns out that “minor injury” wasn’t so minor after all:

This is much more serious than what was reported yesterday:
Five BROKEN RIBS? So much for minor injuries. Attacker should go to prison for a long damn time. https://t.co/rLVGfJcCjf

And this “life-threatening” quote is from the AP article:
3 of them are displaced fractures. Can be life threatening. This is NOT minor injury. https://t.co/kbjeAcKsOk

Exit question: How did authorities decide on the charges if the injury is this severe?
"misdemeanor fourth-degree assault with a minor injury" "minor" means different things, I guess
