Early this morning, NFL Hall of Fame Linebacker Lawrence Taylor was arrested in connection to assault and third-degree rape charges of a 15 year old girl. Third-degree rape is defined as sex with a minor under the age of 16.

The Journal News of Hudson Valley, N.Y reports that the victim is a runaway who has been gone since March, and according to the Ramapo Police department where Lawrence Taylor is being held, there is a pimp involved with the situation.  The charges involved with this situation could expand to include sex trafficking, though at this time GuysNation has no reason to believe that Lawrence Taylor would be involved in those allegations.

You can also add assault to the list of charges which Taylor might be accused of, as a source close to the story gave more details: “She got punched in the face. We’re not sure who did it.”

With an arraignment hearing scheduled for this afternoon, we’ll let you know more on this story once more information is available.
