Didn't take long for the suits at CBS to fire AM anchor Brendan Higgins.

As FTVLive told you earlier this week, Higgins was arrested in Aspen, Colorado for being physically and verbally abusive and intoxicated. As he was being handcuffed, police say Higgins announced, "I'm going to beat you until you're dead'.

A spokesperson for KTVT told the Dallas News, "Brendan Higgins is no longer with the station."

Higgins posted this on his Facebook:

              If my email inbox is any indication, many of you are wondering about a recent incident in Aspen, Colo., that resulted in my arrest. Sorry it took so long to issue a post as I’ve been dealing with the related matters. First, I need to apologize for the negative attention this incident has brought to my wife and our family, our friends and the many wonderful people I’ve worked with over the years. I’m also sorry to the authorities in Aspen, who do a great job every day. I simply put myself and others in a bad situation, which will not happen again. My plan is to answer the legal charges against me. Thanks to all of you who have sent your support.

Who's the tough guy now?
