    CT - Rob Morrison for domestic violence, Darien, 2013

    http://news.yahoo.com/ny-tv-anchor-a...030529872.html

    DARIEN, Conn. (AP) — A New York television news anchor fought with his wife and then choked her at their home and threatened her even after he was arrested, police said.

    Officers received a call early Sunday morning from WCBS-TV anchor Rob Morrison's mother-in-law about what was going on at the couple's home in Darien, police said. Morrison had been belligerent toward his wife, CBS financial news anchor Ashley Morrison, throughout the night and ended up with his hands wrapped around her neck, leaving red marks, they said.

    The arresting officers said they heard Rob Morrison threaten to do his wife more harm while they were processing him. They said his wife didn't seek medical attention.

    A concerning fact is that he apparently continued to make "future threats" against her while the police were attempting to restrain him.

    The continued threats against his wife while being booked, pretty well moots the
    'greatly exaggerated' statement, huh?

    That guy definitely needs help before he kills someone.

    Police say NY TV anchor threatened wife with death


    STAMFORD, CONN. — A New York City TV anchorman issued a death threat against his wife as he was being arrested on charges of attacking her at their Connecticut home, according to a court document released Tuesday.

    A Darien, Conn., police officer wrote that Rob Morrison, who works for WCBS-TV, "threatened that if he was released from police custody, he would kill his wife."

    The document was offered in Superior Court in Stamford, Conn., in support of an order of protection against Morrison. Judge Kenneth Povadator ordered Morrison to stay 100 yards away from Ashley Morrison except when they're both at work.

    I'd say he's done in the industry-especially since he resigned from NBC due to an inappropriate relationship with an intern,
    I feel for their children.

    This one has some good info too:

    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/h...SS3aHEOhXRUPmJ

    bbm

    - “I can’t go home tonight man, I’m f--king killing her!” a vodka-fueled Morrison, 44, slurred to a cop booking him

    - He also taunted his arresting officers, dubbing one cop “Sergeant Douchebag” and daring them to make his handcuffs tighter

    - (she) bashed Morrison in the face with a remote control to stop him from choking her with both hands

    - Ashley’s brother, Dr. Gregory Risk, told police that Morrison once threatened the couple’s 7-year-old son, Jack. “G. Risk stated that in the past R. Morrison commented to him that if A. Morrison leaves him he would shoot their son in front of her and then shoot her,” police wrote.

    - sources told The Post that Ashley is also confrontational — and that she got him fired as morning news anchor at WNBC/Channel 4 in 2008. WNBC refused to renew his lucrative contract when Ashley e-mailed about 100 people in the newsroom, accusing them of being complicit in his suspected affair with a production assistant or intern.

    From your link seems this has been going on a long time:

    Police have been called at least eight times to break up fights between Rob and Ashley Morrison, beginning in 2003. He was arrested once before, in
    2009, though the court records from that case are sealed.

    On New Year’s Eve in 2005, Ashley Morrison dialed 911 and reported that her husband was being emotionally abusive and 'screaming all the time,' the New York Daily News reports.


    In July 2009, a fight broke out after Rob Morrison returned home drunk and started watching internet porn. It was after that encounter that Morrison was arrested - though no details of the case are available.


    The Daily News reports that a source said Rob Morrison had struggled with anger problems and alcohol.
