STAMFORD - All charges have been dropped against former New York City news anchor and Darien resident Rob Morrison.

The charges stemmed from a February 2013 incident in which Morrison was accused of trying to strangle his wife, Ashley Morrison - an anchor for CBS MoneyWatch.

Along with dropping the charges, the judge also withdrew Morrison's guilty pleas.

The judge ordered Morrison to continue the family program he's been involved in, but ultimately dropped the charges because he says Morrison did everything that the court had asked of him.

"It's a beautiful day. It's a day that I've been waiting for for a long time," Morrison said.
