The former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor was arrested early Thursday morning and will be charged with third-degree rape involving a 15-year-old girl at a hotel in Montebello, N.Y., according to police.Sucks to be Lawrence Taylor right now especially with his well known checkered past of drug abuse.
