Rob Morrison, the former co-anchor of CBS 2 News This Morning and CBS 2 News at Noon, has been cleared of criminal charges after finishing a domestic violence program, according to the Darien Times, Daily News and New York Post. Today in a Stamford court, Morrison was allowed to withdraw his guilty pleas of charges of threatening and disorderly conduct.
Morrison was arrested in February of last year, accusing of choking his wife, then-CBS Money Watch reporter Ashley Morrison. He allegedly told the police, "I can’t go home tonight man, I’m f–king killing her!"
Days later, he "resigned" from the station, leaving his $300,000-a-year job, according to the Daily News, then publicly blamed his wife.
The two are now back together and say their eight-year-old son is "mostly unscathed."
