A son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy is going on trial over a scuffle in a maternity ward in the New York City suburbs.

Douglas Kennedy is accused of physical harassment and child endangerment. Opening arguments begin Monday in Mount Kisco Town Court.

On Jan. 7, Kennedy tried to take his 2-day-old son from the maternity ward at Northern Westchester Hospital. Nurses tried to stop him, citing hospital policy. Two claim he injured them.

A hospital video appears to show a nurse falling to the floor.

Kennedy, a Fox News reporter, says he was just taking the baby to get some fresh air.

He and his wife have called the charges absurd. Kennedy's lawyer has denied that anyone was injured and has claimed the nurses are after money.
