NEW YORK (AP) - Former New York Giants player Luke Petitgout (PEHT’-ih-goo) will serve 30 days in jail after being convicted of harassing his estranged wife and her date.

The 39-year-old former offensive tackle was sentenced Friday after being convicted of a harassment charge in Manhattan Criminal Court. Petitgout was found not guilty of misdemeanor assault.

Authorities alleged Petitgout punched his estranged wife and her date during an altercation at a Manhattan cocktail lounge in June 2014.

The Daily News of New York reports (https://nydn.us/1NBQitV ) that Petitgout’s attorney said his client didn’t throw any punches.

In addition to the jail sentence, a judge ordered Petitgout to complete 26 weeks of a batterer’s counseling program.

Petitgout played college football at Notre Dame and spent eight seasons with the Giants and one with the Buccaneers.
