A New York television news anchor has been accused of choking his wife at their Connecticut home and threatening her even after police arrested him.

Police say they received a call Sunday morning from WCBS-TV anchor Rob Morrison's mother-in-law about what was going on at the couple's home in Darien. They say Morrison had been belligerent toward CBS financial news anchor Ashley Morrison throughout the night and wrapped his hands around her neck.

The arresting officers say they heard him threaten to do her more harm while they were processing him. They say she didn't seek medical attention.

Rob Morrison has posted $100,000 bond and is due in court Tuesday. He faces charges including strangulation and disorderly conduct.

The Morrisons said Monday the allegations are "greatly exaggerated." Their attorney says they're cooperating fully with authorities.
