The arrest of Lawrence Taylor:
One of the greatest linebackers in the history of the NFL, Lawrence Taylor was a terror on the field. This intimidating competitor…
…was a perennial All Star and a Super Bowl champ …
…and will forever be remembered for this tackle.
It was a clean hit in which he snapped Washington Redskins' quarterback Joe Theismann's leg like a pencil, ending Theismann's successful career.
But after his own Hall of Fame career of sacking quarterbacks ended, L-T was accused of sacking underage girls too.
In 2010, he was arrested for having sex with a 16 year old girl. She was a prostitute whom he paid $300 to engage in sex. Taylor was charged with third degree statutory rape and got six months' probation. He told his side of the story to Fox News.
In October 2012, a court rejected the underage hooker's claims that Taylor assaulted her.
Married three times, and pictured here with his first wife and three kids…
…L-T's reputation was further marred by reports of drug abuse and other controversies…
...like a 2009 hit and run crash in which he claimed he thought he only hit a guard rail, but in fact sideswiped another vehicle. Police say he was not impaired at the time and Taylor was released on $500 bond.
