Retired NFL lineman Luke Petitgout was just sentenced to 30 days in jail after a judge convicted him of harassing his estranged wife and a man she was dating.
The charges stem from an incident in June 2014 when Petitgout found out his wife had met up with a guy at a Midtown NYC bar. The ex-NY Giant showed up and freaked out -- yelling profanities and allegedly punched both of them.
After a five day trial, Petitgout was found guilty on two counts of 2nd degree harassment. One piece of good news -- he was found not guilty on the assault charges. He and his wife are now estranged.
In addition to his jail sentence, Petitgout has to attend a 26 week batterers' counseling program. He'll start doing the time immediately.
