by Colonel on February 21, 2013

“Rob Morrison, an anchor for CBS News’ local affiliate in New York, has resigned from his job following allegations that he choked his wife and told police that he would kill her.

Morrison’s mother-in-law called police in Darien, Connecticut, alleging that Morrison had been violent towards his wife Ashley and wrapped his hands around her neck, leaving red marks. While in custody, a drunk Morrison also told police, “I can’t go home tonight man, I’m f–king killing her!” He is currently out on $100,000 bail.

The New York Daily News reported that station managers sat down with Morrison on Wednesday to discuss his job. They were also reportedly angry that the anchor had lied about bruises on his face, according to sources.

His wife was “distressed, visibly shaken, and clearly in fear of her husband,” according to police.
