Football hall of famer accused of raping teen
Lawrence Taylor, considered by many to be one of the greatest NFL players ever, was arrested by Ramapo police this morning in connection with the reported rape and assault of a teenage girl.
Ramapo police say that Taylor has been charged with third-degree rape for allegedly assaulting a 16-year-old reported runaway from the Bronx.
The alleged attack occurred at the Holidome Hotel in Montebello, where police say the victim was transported by a pimp. It's unclear why Taylor was at the hotel.
According to officials, the victim sent a text message to her uncle as she was being driven back to the Bronx by her pimp and another woman. Her uncle then called the NYPD, who waited for the trio when they arrived in the Bronx.
