Palm Beach, FL, United States (4E Sports) – Former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor was arrested in Florida for allegedly driving under the influence (DUI) after he hit a mobile home and sideswiped a police squad car in Palm Beach.

According to reports, the troubled Hall of Famer allegedly drove his Bentley into a mobile home and sideswiped a police squad car, damaging its side mirror.
