Former 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant Lawrence Taylor arrested on rape charges

Posted on

Former NFL linebacker and Dancing With the Stars contestant Lawrence Taylor was arrested this morning in Montebello, N.Y., reports The New York Times. Expect third-degree rape charges to be filed against the football player, who allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old girl. “She was a runaway since March and there was a pimp involved,” Ramapo police supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence told the Times. “She got punched in the face. We’re not sure who did it.” Police will hold a press conference later today to further discuss the arrest. The victim was treated in the hospital.
