NFL legend Lawrence Taylor has been arrested on suspicion of rape in New York, CNN.com is reporting.
Taylor, 51, was taken into custody by police after someone accused the Hall of Famer of raping a 15-year-old runaway at a Holiday Inn in Suffern, NY early Thursday.
Taylor — who’s considered one of the greatest defensive players of all time — recently performed a stint on Dancing With The Stars. In November, Larry was arrested for DUI.

Lawrence has been charged with third-degree rape and assault. He is currently awaiting arraignment.
