Veteran news anchor Rob Morrison resigned in shame from CBS yesterday over his drunken, wife-choking arrest ... then hit up a Connecticut bar to drink more.
The best part? A reporter from the New York Post was there and they talked.
“I just lost my job today,” Morrison sighed at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Stamford, Conn., as he searched for answers at the bottom of a Bud Light pint.
“I could not go on the air again,” the husband of Ashley Morrison lamented.
When asked if he is depressed - as Ashley told the police - Morrison said, “I see a psychiatrist once a week,” and added that he suffers from anxiety.
He left after 90 minutes and three beers with a takeout order of hot wings. He is free on $100,000 bail following Sunday’s arrest on a litany of charges.
Now barred from the million-dollar home he shares with Ashley, he is staying at a hotel across from BWW, which has become his favorite haunt since.
As he sat with The Post yesterday, the handsome local news anchor blamed Ashley Morrison, a “CBS Money” anchor, for allegedly striking the first blow.
The argument broke out after they watched Mystic Pizza.
He said Ashley, a petite, 115-pound blonde, bashed him in the face with the remote, giving him a bloody nose and lip - she's abused him for years, he adds.
The 180-pound former Marine denied choking her, as she told cops. Asked about the marks on her neck indicated in the police report, he said, “What marks?”
Morrison denied threatening their 7-year-old son, Jack; Ashley's brother claims he said “he would shoot their son in front of her and then shoot her” if she ever left him.
He teared up when talking about wanting to stay married to Ashley for Jack’s sake. He said he feared she’d divorce him and turn him into a “part-time” dad.
