Ramapo Police Department Press Release

Former New York Giants great Lawrence Taylor has been arrested for rape in Rockland County, according to reports.

Taylor, 51, was taken into custody by Ramapo police after being accused of raping someone in the Holidome Hotel in Montebello early Thursday.

The Journal News reports the alleged victim was a 15-year-old girl and that she was reportedly beaten during the attack.

Ramapo Detective Lt. Brad Weidel said Taylor has not been formally charged. He said formal charges will be filed when the police investigation is completed.

A news conference is expected later Thursday afternoon where police will reveal more details.

This is not Taylor's first run-in with the law. In the 1990s he was arrested twice on drug charges and in Nov. 2009 he was arrested in Florida for allegedly leaving the scene of an accident.
