Ex-Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s night with a woman at The Plaza hotel on Valentine’s Day weekend went south when the pair started arguing and he allegedly choked her, law-enforcement sources told The Post on Sunday.

The woman told cops she broke a glass and cut her wrists after the fight, sources said. She eventually stopped cooperating.

Officers had rushed to the Midtown hotel after the woman, Svetlana Travis, used her cellphone to call 911 at around 8 p.m. Saturday to say she was having a breakdown and had cut herself, sources said.

​The cops went up to the $1, 000-a-night room, and Spitzer answered the door​, source said. Officers asked the disgraced former governor, “Is there a problem?” a source said.

“Everything’s fine. There’s no problem, ” Spitzer said, according to the source.
