NEW YORK CITY -- Police say a New York City anchorman made a death threat against his wife as he was being arrested on charges of attacking her at their Connecticut home.

The alleged threat was revealed in a court document released during Tuesday's arraignment of WCBS-TV's Rob Morrison.

Meanwhile, New York City police said they were called to the couple's former Manhattan home 11 times between 2004 and 2009 because of domestic disputes.

They said one call resulted in an arrest, but that case was sealed. In the Stamford case, a police officer wrote that Morrison said "he would kill his wife" if he were released.

The judge imposed an order keeping Morrison 100 yards away from Ashley Morrison. Rob Morrison is charged with strangulation, threatening and disorderly conduct.

His lawyer says the allegations have been exaggerated.
