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.

U.S. Women’s Soccer Star Arrested For DUI In Portland

U.S. Women’s Soccer Star Arrested For DUI In Portland

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.

Oscar Taveras Was Drunk During Fatal Crash, Reports Reveal

Oscar Taveras Was Drunk During Fatal Crash, Reports Reveal

As previously reported, St. Louis Cardinals rookie outfielder Oscar Taveras died in a horrific car crash last October 26 in the Dominican Republic. He and his 18-year-old girlfriend, Edilia Arvelo, were driving in his 2014 Chevy Camaro when it ran off the road and killed the both of them.

And as it turns out, 22-year-old Taveras was actually the one at fault.

According to Tessie Sanchez, a spokeswoman for The Dominican attorney general’s office, Taveras was “legally intoxicated” and had a blood-alcohol level five times the country’s legal limit when they crashed.

”Until we have the opportunity to review the official report, we cannot confirm details,” Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said in a statement. ”While we are still working to obtain the facts, it won’t change the fact that this is a terrible tragedy. We have an obligation to use this as an opportunity to educate our players that they must take responsibility for themselves both on and off the field.’

Taveras was laid to rest in a cemetery near the Dominican Republic’s north coast last month.

Alcohol has since been banned from the Cardinals clubhouse and is not provided in the locker room, on the road or on charter flights returning to their home in St. Louis.
