NEW YORK — A son of Robert F. Kennedy is facing misdemeanor charges after fighting with nurses at a suburban New York hospital while trying to carry his newborn son out of the maternity ward.

WNBC-TV reported Friday that nurses at Northern Westchester Hospital say they tried to stop Douglas Kennedy because he wasn't allowed to take the baby from the ward.

Instead, they say, Kennedy argued with them while holding the baby and then became violent during the Jan. 7 incident.

One nurse says Kennedy twisted her arm; another says he kicked her in her pelvic area.

Kennedy and his wife call the allegations "absurd."

He was arraigned Thursday on child endangerment and other charges.

Kennedy is a reporter for Fox News and the 10th child of Robert F. and Ethel Kennedy.
