Kennedy was arrested on Jan. 7 and charged with misdemeanor child endangerment for allegedly twisting the wrist of one of the nurses at Northern Westchester Hospital and kicking another in the groin. According to police reports, the nurses tried to intervene as Kennedy tried to take his newborn infant son outside for some "fresh air." In addition to criminal charges, the case was referred to the State Office of Children and Family Services.
According to the published report, an investigation conducted by the state Office of Children and Family Services concluded that "no credible evidence was found to believe that the child has been abused or maltreated."
Timothy Haydock, a doctor at the hospital and a reported friend of the Kennedy family, was present during the altercation and said the broadcaster did nothing wrong.
“I witnessed the incident and I can state unequivocally that the nurses were the only aggressors,” Haydock was quoted as saying.
Kennedy is due back in Mount Kisco Justice Court on April 12 to answer to criminal charges.
