Lawrence Taylor was arrested last night for a hit-and-run accident in Florida.
Dade County police took Lawrence, an NFL Hall of Famer, into custody just before 10 p.m. Authorities said told The New York Post that’s when he was caught “leaving the scene of accident/property damage."
While riding in his Cadillac Escalade, Lawrence reportedly crashed into a Ford van. Police think he may also have hit a guardrail before speeding off. Although his right front tire was knocked off, police stopped him two miles from the accident.
Despite his bloodshot eyes, Police told TMZ.com that they didn’t think a field sobriety test was necessary. The former “Dancing With the Star” contestant was let go on $500 bond.
Thankfully, no one was injured.
