Son of Robert F. Kennedy Charged Over Clash With Nurses
But Taub said both nurses had not recognized Kennedy as the child’s father and intended to protect the baby, who apparently had not been discharged. They were trying to enforce hospital rules, Taub said.
Kennedy denied those allegations, saying “the nurse had no right to grab our child out of his father’s arms.”
His attorney, Robert Gottlieb, said his client was “calm and considerate” and only became aggressive when the two nurses tried to take the baby.
Gottlieb said one nurse said to Kennedy, ” ‘Absolutely not,’ and got very aggressive.”
“Dr. Haydock told the nurses he was going to go with (Kennedy),” according to Gottlieb, who said the baby was wrapped in a blanket and had a cap on his head. “He wasn’t kidnapping him, obviously.”
