NEW YORK (AP) -- Former New York Jets defensive end Mark Gastineau was sentenced to 15 days in jail Friday after being arrested earlier in the week on charges he violated a protection order obtained by his estranged wife.

Gastineau, 42, surrendered at a Queens precinct stationhouse Monday. He was charged with visiting the Queens home of his wife, Patricia Schorr, on June 22, and leaning on the intercom buzzer from 3:30 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. and refusing to leave, police said.

Schorr obtained the protection order against Gastineau, who became a professional boxer for a time, following his October guilty plea on a misdemeanor assault charge for hitting her. He was arrested a month earlier for hitting her and threatening her with a glass cocktail table.

Though harassment charges for the intercom incident are pending, Justice Deborah Stevens Modica, of the state Supreme Court in Queens, sentenced Gastineau to 15 days in jail because his arrest violated the terms of a conditional discharge in a separate harassment case involving a woman he dated before marrying Schorr in September.

Gastineau pleaded guilty last year to hitting an unidentified woman on a street in Bayside, N.Y. He was released on the conditions that he attend an anger management class and stay out of trouble.

Gastineau, a former Arizona resident who played for the Jets for 10 years and had 107 1/2 career sacks, was previously found guilty of assault in 1984 and was sentenced to three years probation in 1993 on drug charges.
