Lawrence Taylor: Arrested, But Sober!

by at . Comments

NFL legend Lawrence Taylor has a history of substance abuse, but there was no evidence of drugs or hookers playing a role in his Florida arrest last night.

Taylor, who recently competed on Dancing with the Stars and won two Super Bowls with the New York Giants, was merely nailed for leaving scene of an accident.

The original LT (talk to us when you play on Super Bowl Sunday, LaDainian Tomlinson) was brought to a local police station and was later released on $500 bond.

Cops say despite his bloodshot eyes in the mug shots below, Taylor, who has been clean for years, was totally coherent and officers didn't perform a sobriety test.

That doesn't explain why he allegedly hit another car, crashed into a guard rail, then drove several miles from the scene while his car was missing a tire, but hey.

LT Mug Shot

Lawrence Taylor demolished his car like he used to smash opposing quarterbacks to pieces... except that his devastating hits were actually legal on the football field.

Police found LT standing outside his car, which was missing a front tire ... which was found at the scene of the crash. That's as sloppy as O.J. Simpson leaving one glove covered in his dead ex-wife's blood at his house and the other at hers.

"He said he had been involved in a crash," Lt. James Durden of the Florida Highway Patrol said, adding he "thought he hit only a guard rail and not another car."

Fortunately, no one was hurt and no one else but Taylor involved in the crash. Taylor was also very cooperative when he was arrested. Small victories, right?
