NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor was arrested at a Rockland, NY hotel last night and is being charged with raping a 15-year-old girl.
Taylor was taken into custody by Ramapo police at the Holiday Inn.
Taylor is currently being held in the town police lockup pending arraignment in Ramapo Justice Court this afternoon. He is being charged with third-degree rape, a charge that involves having intercourse with a minor.
The victim was reportedly beaten during the attack.
The victim is a runaway from the Bronx who was brought by a pimp to the Holiday Inn where Taylor was staying.
The girl got beaten up at the hotel, authorities said, and later needed treatment at a hospital.
The police got involved after the girl texted her uncle as the pimp drove her down to the Bronx, The uncle called the New York City Police Department and officers met the pimp’s car in the city, according to police.
The police took statements from the girl, arrested the pimp and called the Ramapo Police Department, who sent officers to the hotel to investigate.
Ramapo police are planning a news conference later this afternoon to provide more details in the case.
I know LT has struggled with his demons, but this is terrible. Apparently he learned nothing from Big Douche over the past month.
Chances of this being blamed on head injury are 1 in 4.
