SUFFERN, N.Y. - Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor was arrested Thursday in connection with the rape of a 16-year-old girl who police said was delivered to his suburban New York City hotel room against her will.
The former New York Giants linebacker was arrested early Thursday at a Holiday Inn in Suffern, said Christopher St. Lawrence, supervisor of the town of Ramapo. The victim was 16, one year below the legal age of consent in New York, St. Lawrence said.
An attorney for Taylor, Kenneth Gribetz, said he expected Taylor to be arraigned later Thursday. “We’re confident his innocence will be proven,” he said.
Another man, Rasheed Davis, 36, was arrested in the case on charges of unlawful imprisonment, assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
Police said the girl had been staying with Davis in the Bronx for a few weeks. He beat her up, drove her to the Holiday Inn and told her she had to have sex with Taylor, police said. When she refused, Davis handed her over to Taylor, who sexually assaulted her, they said. Taylor paid her $300, which she gave to Davis, police said.
Davis “struck the young girl with his fist, kicked her and brought her to the Holiday Inn against her will,” NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said.
On the way back from Suffern, the girl sent text messages to her uncle spelling out what had happened, Browne said. The uncle then went to the NYPD, he said.
There was no phone number listed at the address provided by police for Davis and it wasn’t clear if he had an attorney. His relationship with the girl was unclear.
The Bronx district attorney’s office refused to comment.
Ramapo Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence told the Journal News that the victim was a runaway who was brought by a pimp to the hotel where Taylor was staying.
"She was a runaway since March and there was a pimp involved," St. Lawrence told the Lower Hudson Valley newspaper. "She got punched in the face. We're not sure who did it."
The police got involved after the girl texted her uncle as the pimp drove her down to the Bronx, St. Lawrence told the newspaper. The uncle called the New York City Police Department and officers met the pimp's car in the city, St. Lawrence said.
The police took statements from the girl and arrested the pimp.
Taylor was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999 and competed in ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” last year. He had a highly publicized struggle with drug addiction and has had multiple legal run-ins since retiring from football.
A quick, fierce and athletic linebacker who redefined his position, Taylor anchored the Giants’ defense and led New York to Super Bowls titles in 1987 and 1991. He was selected to the NFL’s 75th Anniversary All-Time Team.

Look if he's guilty throw the book and lock him up.All I am saying is if this story is true ...it strikes me as odd that the girl only gets in touch with the uncle ..till after having sex with LT....on the way home,not in any of the weeks before ,not after getting beaten by her "Pimp",and if you were a girls pimp and had to force her to do this (crap)....would you let her have a cell phone?

Re: What do Big Ben and Lawrence Taylor have in common?

Disturbing story all around. A couple of random thoughts:

I wonder if craigslist was involved.

With LT's previous criminal history, would a conviction be viewed as a 3rd strike scenario.

Strange - alot of people said Ben should get a room and hire escorts. Sounds like LT tried to do that, but geez.

I would not be surprised if it gets plead down to a misdemeanor, IF, LT can show reasonable belief she was older.

The running away aspect has to scare every parent of a teenage girl. They are emotional wrecks.

The guy punching her in the face and forcing her will certainly go away for a LOOOONNNG time.

Those are interesting points, I am just not sure what you are implying? That it was a setup? That nothing happened and they(the girl and guy) are trying to extort LT? What is the alternative that you might see to answer your questions.

LT is one of those athletes whose life seems like a train wreck waiting to happen. He lives with a wrecklessness similar to Mike Tyson and John Daly. Frankly, I'm surprised that he made it to 50.

I AM not defending him....lets make this clear please.All I'm saying is this sounds a bit strange to me,remember the Dukes LX team .The story as is just doesn't sit right with me.Look at it like you didn't know who he was.

I admit I have thought the same thing.

Apologize. Yours had more info. But I'm assuming your backing LT which I guess I am sorta also. Not sure what the hooker laws are up there in the town where it occured or NY in general.

Whats funnier is if it happened here in VA, the pimp would get punished worse for pimping out a juvenile, the juvenile might catch a charge of prostitution, and LT might catch a charge of contributing to a delinquency of a minor. Any adult having sex with a minor (someone under 18) 15-17 is simply contributing which is a misdemeanor unless she says he forced himself on her.

Also I'm betting she would not have said a thing to her family had it been an average joe. Because it was LT and perhaps he was stupid enough to mention it or she recognized him is why I'm betting she contacted her family. Basically trying to brag about it. "Hey Unc, guess who I just shagged? LT."

I didn't think you were defending him, I just don't get how all the pieces that you pointed out fit together. I agree some parts seem strange. Of course, the police aren't gonna say everything. And, I, right or wrongly, assumed that she had been talking to the uncle prior and he was somehow associated with the "pimp". Doesn't say much of his being an uncle, but that's how I filled in the back story.
