(NEW YORK) - A former NFL player has been arrested on a charge that he hit his wife and shoved her from a moving car in New York City.

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 couldn'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.
