Cops: Ex-New York news anchor arrested again for harassing wife

By Michelle Kapusta,

Authorities have said that ex-New York news anchor Rob Morrison has been arrested on charges that he violated a protective order against him.

According to the New York Daily News, officers arrested the former WCBS reporter on Monday after he called his wife more than 120 times over the span of a few days. Over 100 of the calls were allegedly made on May 25 and all of the calls were to her Darien, Connecticut home and her cell phone.

The 46-year-old turned himself in on a warrant at about 6 p.m. and was charged with criminal violation of a protective order and harassment.

The New York Post reported that the former TV anchor was arrested last year for allegedly choking his fellow-journalist wife Ashley, and threatening to kill their 7-year-old son.

After the alleged incident, his wife got the protection order against him.

Morrison said that they had reconciled last summer, but did not comment on the latest accusations.

His wife is a former CBS MoneyWatch reporter.
