New York Giants Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor was arrested for the rape of a teenager (some reports say she's 15; others 16), who police say was "delivered" to his hotel room against her will.

Taylor "was charged with third-degree felony rape, a charge that involves having intercourse with a minor" and carries a term of up to four years in prison. The NFL legend is also accused of beating his victim during the alleged rape.
