Morrison was arrested by Darien police for violating a protective order after he contacted his wife, former CBS MoneyWatch anchor Ashley Morrison, more than 100 times over Memorial Day weekend. Morrison was also charged with harassment in the incident.
Rob Morrison, who was cleared of domestic violence charges in April, told the Darien Times the pair had an argument after he “refused to discuss relocating in the presence of the couple’s 8-year-old son”:
Morrison said the entire incident has been taken out of context. He said most of those phone calls and text messages were the result of his attempts to contact his son after Ashley kicked him out of the house for refusing to discuss relocation plans.
“She became very agitated and very irate,” Morrison told The Darien Times. “I was trying to diffuse the situation. She raised her voice, called me names, et cetera… I look over and there’s [our son]… He’s crying. He saw what he perceived to be a pretty boisterous argument between his mom and dad, when in fact, it was instigated by one party.
“I was trying to make my way over to comfort him and she” yelled at him to leave in front of their son, he said. “If she says that I’ve got to go,” under the terms of the protective order.
No word yet on where Ashley Morrison might be relocating to. She signed off from CBS MoneyWatch last year.[Image via The Hartford Courant]
