Lawrence Taylor Dancing With The Stars Contestant Arrested For Rape

Taylor was taken into custody at a Holiday Inn in Rockland, N.Y. The  victim “was a runaway since March, and there was a pimp involved,” a  Ramapo Police Department supervisor told the Journal News,

Lawrence Taylor, a Hall of Fame linebacker who played for the New  York Giants from 1981 to 1993 and competed on the eighth season of  “Dancing With the Stars” alongside pro Edyta Sliwinska, has been  arrested in a Montibello, New York rape investigation.

The Ramapo Police Department tells ET that the alleged crime took  place at the Holidome Hotel in Montebello, New York. Formal charges will  be filed upon the completion of their investigation.

The girl texted her uncle as the pimp drove her back to the Bronx,  and the pimp was subsequently taken into custody by NYPD, according to  St. Lawrence.

An NYPD spokesman declined to comment and referred all calls to the  Ramapo PD.

Taylor, a football icon and one of the NFL’s  greatest defensive players, has a history of drug abuse and other  run-ins with the law. He has tested positive for cocaine several times  during his NFL career and has been arrested for buying cocaine from  undercover police officers.

Taylor — a 10-time Pro Bowl linebacker for the New York Giants from  1981-1993 — was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars last  year.

On the red carpet of the 2010 NFL draft Taylor was asked about what  he remembered about his draft day.? He answered that he didn’t remember  much because he drank 41 Coors Lights.

Lawrence Taylor was  elected to the NFL Hall Of Fame in 1999.

He appeared on Dancing  with the Stars in 2009.
