Lawrence Taylor has been arrested for rape
Officials have released a statement confirming 51-year-old Taylor was taken into custody by police after someone accused the Hall of Famer of committing rape early this morning at a Holiday Inn in Suffern, NY.

The Town of Ramapo Police Department is currently investigating the situation.

A news conference is scheduled to take place in the next few hours.

Taylor -- who's considered one of the greatest defensive players of all time -- recently performed a stint on "Dancing with the Stars."

Taylor has a deep history with the law -- he's been arrested multiple times on drug charges ... and back in November, he was arrested for hit-and-run.

UPDATE: According to a local NY paper, authorities have identified the victim as a 15-year-old girl, who was working under the control of a pimp. TMZ has not been able to independently confirm the report.

Hey! He's 51...she is 15... maybe he's simply into numerology...that's not against the law... Here's the numerology here... follow closely: 51 plus 15 equals 66. This is day 6 of May. Now put'em all together...what you got?



666..........Hmmmm.

It's funny how people make all these racist comments over the internet... It's obvious alot of you are ignorant and small minded... 10 out of 10 times the racist things you people say you would keep to yourself if there was a minority in your presence... Shame on you for making those types or comments and shame on TMZ.com for letting you people post comments like those...
