WCBS news anchor Rob Morrison is facing charges of allegedly choking his wife, CBS MoneyWatch anchor Ashley Morrison, according to Connecticut authorities.

Rob Morrison was taken into custody early Sunday at the couple's Darien home when police responded to a "domestic violence incident" called in by Ashley Morrison's mother, according to a statement from the Darien Police Department.

He was arrested for allegedly choking his wife with both hands after becoming "increasingly belligerent...during the course of the evening," the statement said.

Officers observed red marks on Ashley Morrison's neck, but she did not request medical treatment, according to the police department release.
