Former News Anchor Arrested Again After Calling His Wife 121 Times In One Weekend


Former CBS 2 anchor Rob Morrison was arrested again after he called his wife 121 times over the Memorial Day weekend.

Morrison was arrested last year and resigned from his job at CBS' New York affiliate after he allegedly choked his wife Ashley. She has a protective order against him, and he returned to court Tuesday to face charges of violating that order and harassing his wife.

The Connecticut Post reported that Morrison called his wife 109 times on May 25. He “would hang up and call right back for approximately 14 hours," court records said, and Ashley Morrison was “physically shaking" when she went to police in Darien, Connecticut. Police also said that "she thinks Rob Morrison could kill her if she has him arrested."

Later when police moved to arrest him, Ashley Morrison "became irate” and told police that “things are fine and she does not want to pursue any charges.” Rob Morrison turned himself in on Monday, and is currently out on $50,000 bail.

His lawyer Frank Discala claimed in an interview with the Darien Times that the couple has "been getting along great."
