Kennedy is charged after tussle with nurses
Monday 27 February 2012
The son of the murdered US Senator Bobby Kennedy is facing criminal charges after a confrontation with two nurses as he tried to take his newborn baby for fresh air, his lawyer said yesterday.
Douglas Kennedy was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and two counts of harassment following an incident at Northern Westchester Hospital in New York City, his lawyer, Robert Gottlieb, said.
Mr Kennedy, a Fox News reporter and the 10th child of Robert and Ethel Kennedy, maintains that he did nothing wrong.
Mr Gottlieb said the clash occurred when the two nurses physically tried to stop Mr Kennedy from taking his newborn son, Bo, out of the maternity ward, even though he had already received permission from other nurses. "Douglas did not do anything wrong. All he wanted to do was to take his newborn son out for fresh air," Mr Gottlieb said. Mr Kennedy and his wife, Molly, said the claims were "absurd".
