A protective order was issued for a news anchor for WCBS, who was arrested early Sunday morning after he was accused of trying to strangle his wife at their home in Darien.
Police were called to Rob Morrison's home around 1:30 a.m. where they found his wife, Ashley Morrison, with red marks on her neck. She told police that he became angry towards her and choked her.
Morrison was arraigned in Norwalk Superior Court on Tuesday morning and his case was continued until March 26. The order states that Rob Morrison must have no contact with his wife, Ashley Morrison, and stay at least 100 yards away from her, except at work.
According to its website, Morrison, who has more than 20 years of reporting experience, joined WCBS-TV in 2009 and anchors its morning and noon news.
According to the Associated Press, between 2004 and 2009, the New York Police Department was Ashley Morrison and Rob Morrison's home in Manhattan 11 times for domestic disputes.
On Monday, Rob Morrison and his wife, Ashley Morrison released the following statement on his arrest.
"Rob and Ashley Morrison are cooperating fully with the authorities to insure that all of the information necessary to properly evaluate this unfortunate incident is made available," attorney Robert Skovgaard said in a statement. "The Morrisons are confident that a full review of this mater will show that the allegations have been greatly exaggerated."
Morrison was charged with second-degree strangulation, second-degree threatening and disorderly conduct.
