Ex-Giants Great Lawrence Taylor Gets Busted For DUI (PHOTOS)

Former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor was busted for driving under the influence in Florida over the weekend.

According to a report by WPTV, the 57-year-old Hall of Famer had sideswiped a patrol car and a motor home as he tried to switch lanes while driving his Bentley in Palm Beach Gardens at around 5:30 p.m.

 

Fortunately, there were no injuries reported and only the patrol car’s side mirror was damaged. Taylor was reportedly taken to the Palm Beach County Jail.

 

It definitely isn’t Taylor’s first run-in with the law. Aside from admitting to using cocaine during his NFL career, he pleaded guilty to patronizing a prostitute and having sex with a minor in 2010. He was also arrested twice for attempting to buy crack.

Abby Wambach has been busted for driving under the influence (of alcohol) in downtown Portland over the weekend.

The world cup star was caught by Portland police when she allegedly ran a red light, and then failed the field sobriety test and breathalyzer. Even though her blood alcohol level wasn’t revealed, she does appear incredibly glassy eyed in her mug shot.

Looks like it was an honest mistake though. Portland PD said she was very “polite and cooperative” during her DUI arrest. She also made a public apology for her loved ones and fans, saying she takes full responsibility for her actions and will “do whatever it takes to ensure that my horrible mistake is never repeated.”

Abby retired late last year after winning the World Cup and was partners with Caitlyn Jenner in a golf tournament a couple of days ago.

Houston Texans wide receiver Jaelen Strong got busted over the weekend for admittedly smoking weed without a medical card.

The American footballer was driving around in Scottsdale, Arizona–with Green Bay Packers cornerback Damarious Randall–when he was stopped by cops for not having visible license plates. Cops say the car smelled strongly of weed, and Strong eventually admitted to smoking pot. Not only that, he even handed a cigar box with 3 joints inside to the authorities.

He was arrested and booked at the nearby jail just moments later. As for Randall, he was a lot luckier after being released at the scene.

No word yet from Jaelen’s coach or teammates.

Some bad news for Indiana Pacers’ Chris Copeland’s fans and family: Chris and his wife, Katrine Saltara, were stabbed with a folding knife after engaging in a verbal fight just outside the famous 1 Oak nightclub in Manhattan at about 4 a.m. early Wednesday.

According to the police report, the Pacers forward was stabbed in the abdomen and the elbow while his wife was slashed in the arms and chest. The couple has since been hospitalized at a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Another woman was said to have been injured after suffering a slash in the abdomen. The suspect has been identified as 22-year-old Shezoy Bleary and is believed to be the boyfriend of the unidentified injured woman.

“They were engaged in a verbal dispute in front of the location,” NYPD Officer Sophia Mason said in a statement. “The males engaged in a confrontation, and that’s when the 22-year-old male stabbed the 31-year-old male.”

The report adds that two Atlanta Hawks, Pero Antic and Thabo Sefolosha, interfered with the arrest by trying to prevent authorities from setting up a crime scene and were later taken into custody.

Pacers president, Larry Bird, tweeted after the incident, “Our thoughts are with Chris and those injured.”
