Outside the courthouse, Morrison said: “I did not choke my wife. I’ve never raised my hands to my wife.”
The NYPD said it was called 11 times between 2004 and 2009 to the couple’s home on West 90th Street. In the 10 cases that did not result in an arrest, the calls involved verbal disputes and harassment, with no allegations of physical violence, the police said.
It was not clear if violence was alleged in the case that was sealed. Skovgaard did not immediately return a call about the New York incidents.
Morrison was released Tuesday on the $100,000 bond he posted Sunday. He is due back in court in Stamford on March 26.
Morrison, who has been a combat correspondent and was a reporter and anchor for WNBC-TV, anchors WCBS-TV’s news programs “This Morning” and “News at Noon.” Ashley Morrison worked for Bloomberg Television before joining “CBS MoneyWatch.”
The couple has a young son.
Skovgaard said that because of the order of protection, Morrison “will not be going home tonight.”
