Arrests

TROUBLE WITH THE LAW

The 2013 offseason was a rough one for NFL players and the law. Take a look back at the players arrested before camp ever opened.

Former New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive tackle Luke Petitgout reported to a Manhattan police precinct Tuesday.

Police say he struck his wife with her pocketbook Friday and then tossed her from the car. His wife took a taxi to a police station and filed a report.

Petitgout was arrested on an assault charge. He is in police custody awaiting arraignment and can't be reached for comment. It wasn't immediately clear who's representing him.

Petitgout played college football for Notre Dame, then spent eight seasons with the Giants and one season with the Buccaneers. They released him in 2008.
