Rob Morrison has since been portrayed as a hard-drinking, verbally abusive bully with a taste for internet porn with a history of incidents with the NYPD.

Rob was arrested Sunday after a late-night fight with Ashley Morrison in their Connecticut home, was also arrested for assault after a 2009 altercation with her.

The ex-Marine, who served as a foreign correspondent in Iraq and Afghanistan, has been cited in half a dozen domestic incident reports from 2003-09.

In one of the incidents, Morrison actually filed a complaint against Ashley; she was the complainant in the other five incidents on file with the police.

There were few additional details about the disputes between Ashley and Rob Morrison, 44, who was due in a Connecticut courtroom this morning.

A mug shot released after his 1:30 a.m. arrest Sunday showed the typically dapper anchor with a swollen lip, bloodied nose ... and an absurd smirk:

Ashley Morrison reportedly had red marks around her neck, and Rob Morrison was charged with second-degree strangulation, a felony offense.

He was also charged with misdemeanor threatening and disorderly conduct.

Ashley Morrison’s mother, Martha Risk, called 911 to summon cops to the Connecticut home where she said her daughter was under attack.

Cops said that Morrison was “choking her by the neck with both hands.”

It was unclear what the pair, parents of a 7-year-old boy, argued about.

Rob Morrison was freed on $100,000 bond after his arrest.
