Douglas Kennedy acquitted in N.Y. hospital case

Douglas Kennedy, the son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, was acquitted Tuesday of harassment and child endangerment charges.

Kennedy had been accused of twisting a nurse's arm and kicking another in January as he tried to leave the maternity ward of a suburban New York City hospital with his newborn son.

The incident was captured by a security camera at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco, about 40 miles north of New York City.
