Ex-New York Giant Luke Petitgout — who recently served a month in jail for harassing his wife and her date — is now facing drug charges over a load of narcotics allegedly found in his car.
The 6-foot-6, 270-pound former offensive tackle was stopped by cops in New Jersey, allegedly with drugs including cocaine, amphetamines, fluoxymesterone (anabolic steroids), marijuana and ethylone (a psychedelic amphetamine designer drug), according to law enforcement.
The Union County Prosecutors office told Page Six in a statement: “The defendant you referenced has been indicted on four counts of third-degree possession of a controlled dangerous substance and one count of fourth-degree possession of a prescription legend drug in connection with a traffic stop that took place at approximately 1:39 a.m. on Dec. 21, 2014, in Roselle, NJ.
“He is also charged with a disorderly persons charge of possession of marijuana and [moving violations] offenses of driving while intoxicated and possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle. The next court date in this matter is scheduled for May 2 before state Superior Court Judge Robert J. Mega.”
Back in 2008, Petitgout was suspended from the NFL for steroid use while playing for the Buccaneers after eight seasons with the Giants.
More recently, Petitgout, 39, was sent to jail in December after allegedly punching his estranged wife, Jennifer Petitgout, 38, and John Constantinides during a 2014 incident at a Midtown lounge. He was convicted only of harassment and acquitted of attempted assault following a trial in Manhattan Criminal Court.
Jennifer was with Constantinides after meeting him on no-strings adult-sex site adultfriendfinder.com, and Petitgout testified he and his wife created a profile on the site as a “game” — but his wife took it too far when she set up a tryst with the other man.
