Former WCBS-TV News Anchor Rob Morrison Arrested Again

Former WCBS-TV news anchor Rob Morrison, arrested a year ago in a domestic violence case, was charged Monday with violating a court order that prohibited him from calling his wife in Darien, police announced.

Over several days in May, Morrison placed more than 100 calls to his wife, Darien police said in a Tuesday news release. Ashley Morrison, his wife, was previously an anchor for CBS MoneyWatch The calls were made both to her residence on Hollow Tree Ridge Road and to her cell phone, police said.

A judge in state Superior Court in Stamford, issued an arrest warrant charging Morrison, 46, now of 50 Forest St., Stamford, with one count of criminal violation of a protective order and one count of second-degree harassment.

His bond was set at $50,000, with a court appearance scheduled for Tuesday, June 17 (today).

Such a shame that he turned out to be a dirt bag. I always liked him as a newscaster. Where do these guys get off thinking it's OK to abuse women? Put him in a room with Laila Ali. Then let's see who gets abused.

You know she is going to end up dead unless.... What is it going to take to get this sicko some real help so he isn't a danger to his wife and does something tragic to her?

More needs to be done to help and protect women and children from abuse and harassment. My ex abused me so badly that I needed back surgery. My kids were abused and neglected for years on visitation. No one would listen to me. The courts only listened to him and his lies because he had the money. He left us with nothing then has threatened and tormented me with as many as 130 emails a month for years. The police don't care, No body and especially Westchester courts don't care about women and children.

I saw his TV interview and yet he does not think he did anything wrong, and this is all normal. Its not normal to live subject to a protective order, and I wonder how your town could allow someone who is covered by a protective order to coach little league? Really? isnt anyone there watching the news?
