Scoops today: Retired American football icon Lawrence Taylor has been arrested and charged with the rape following an incident with a minor at a New York hotel on Thursday.
The former New York Giants player was taken into custody by the Town of Ramapo police in the early hours of Thursday.
Town of Ramapo Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence also said that investigators found Lawrence Taylor asleep inside the room when they first arrived to the hotel.
Cops recovered a condom as well as other physical evidence when they took Taylor into custody – but found NO DRUGS or paraphernalia at the scene.
Police say the accuser is only 16 years old, that she was reported as a “runaway” from the Bronx back in March, and was under the control of a pimp.
Cops say the accuser had a “nasty” black eye that looked to be “fresh,” though it’s unclear who attacked her or if it’s connected with the Lawrence Taylor incident.
In addition to charges filed against Lawrence Taylor, the pimp was arrested on charges of unlawful imprisonment, assault and endangering the welfare of a minor.
