For those that thought the justice system was going on vacation in regards to pro-athletes, think again.

Pro football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor was arrested in New York and has been accused of rape, according to CBS.

Reported today [May 6], there are claims that Taylor, 51, raped a person in the Holidome Hotel located in Montebello.

Having limited details, HipHopWired will keep readers updated as the case unfolds.

With the ongoing allegations, this wouldn’t be the first time the former New York Giants player has had to deal with the law or with controversy.  During his playing career, he admitted to using cocaine starting as early as his second year within the NFL, having to deal with multiple suspensions after failing drug tests.

After retirement, Taylor was placed behind bars on three occasions for attempted drug possession, although he has been able to maintain a drug-free life since 1998.
