Former Giant Luke Petitgout Arrested For Sexual Assault Against Wife
Former Giants offensive lineman Luke Petitgout has been charged with sexual assault in New Jersey after allegedly attacking his estranged wife.
The hulking, ex-NFL player who has a growing rap sheet was arrested at his estranged wife’s Woodcliff home around 6 a.m. Tuesday, a source close to the investigation told the Daily News.
“It happened at her house where he’s not supposed to be,” the source said. “(The wife) was photographed with bruises,” they added.
A babysitter at the house who witnessed the alleged attack is now expected to be called to testify.
Petitgout’s attorney, reacting to the charges, slammed the allegations as “baseless.”
“We intend to vigorously defend against the charges,” Patrick J. Jennings of Hackensack, N.J. told The News.
The 38-year-old had just come from a Giants reunion and was waiting for his wife to return home when the attack allegedly took place, said the source.
He was later charged with sexual assault with force and simple assault while ordered held on $50,000 bail, Bergen County jailhouse records show.
Petitgout’s arrest is just the latest claim of physical brutality against him after he was accused of roughing up is wife after a night out in the Meatpacking District in August, 2013.
Sounds like this is his M.O., putting hands on people. SMH.
