CBS anchor Morrison ‘would kill his wife’ if released: court papers

Posted by on Feb 19, 2013 at 5:27 pm

Longtime New York anchorman Rob Morrison threatened “he would kill his wife” after cops arrested him for choking his fellow-CBS journalist spouse in their Connecticut home, explosive court documents released today revealed.

On Sunday morning, while being booked by police, Morrison, 44, “threatened that if he was released from police custody he would kill his wife” Ashley, according Darien Police Office Patrick Clohessy, who is quoted in a court filing.

That threat, and the allegations that Morrison used both hands to throttle 40-year-old Ashley, led a judge yesterday to continue to bar Morrison from having any contact from his wife, visiting their house or going within 100 yards of her except for their common workplace at WCBS-TV.

Judge Kenneth Povadator, speaking during Morrison’s arraignment in Stamford Superior Court, said the Darien police report on Morrison’s arrest “not only reflects a serious incident, if reflects the likelihood of a serious history.”

“If I’m going to make a mistake, I’m going to err on the side of safety,” said Povadator, as he also maintained Morrison’s $100,000 bond, which the anchorman had already posted.

    Has anyone checked whether this person has access to firearms? Because this is the kind of person who does shoot up a workplace to get to an estranged spouse.

    We should add newscasters to the list of people prohibited from being near firearms. We should do this………..for the children.

    or,

    A new front has beenopened in the war on women. And leftists are leading the way! (if you think a newsguy at CBS isn’t a leftist, I have a healthcare reform to sell you).

    He’s obviously just misunderstood. Leftist journalists can never be evil. Just misunderstood. And pure of heart. And…WTF??

    …led a judge yesterday to continue to bar Morrison from having any contact from his wife, visiting their house or going within 100 yards of her except for their common workplace at WCBS-TV.

    Yeah, I’ll bet she’ll sure feel safe at work because, you know, he’s really just misunderstood and not deranged or anything. Anyone working in the press is above reproach.
