OGDEN -- A Bountiful man accused of groping a nurse during the birth of his child will undergo psychological evaluations to determine if he is competent to stand trial.

Adam Manning, 30, made national headlines when he was arrested at McKay-Dee Hospital Center Oct. 9 for allegedly grabbing the nurse twice while his pregnant girlfriend was giving birth.

According to the Standard-Examiner, Manning told his attorneys he remembers nothing about the incident. His attorneys claimed that during the birth, Manning was on medication for a recent injury and had a bad reaction to it.

They requested the court review Manning's mental competency before moving ahead with the case.

A judge set a hearing for Dec. 1 to review the results of the psychological testing.
