UPDATE (6:47 am PT): MIAMI HERALD has a confusing account of the Taylor arrest. Did he hit another car and try to drive off in a car missing one wheel? Not clear. Jump in the comments if you can figure it out.
Lawrence Taylor arrested? And here I thought that the first contestant on “Dancing With The Stars” to be hauled to jail this year was surely going to be Donnie Osmond. At least the booking went smoothly; LT surely knows the procedure.
There aren’t a lot of details, but TMZ was the first to report that Taylor was arrested at 9:57 p.m. on Sunday in Dade County, Florida, for leaving the scene of an accident, in which there was also property damage. I’ll leave you to examine his mug shot and ponder what was going on.
But more potentially damaging than any of that is the following graph from the TMZ report:
According to the booking sheet, Taylor — who is a spokesman for Nutrisystem — was listed at 253 pounds.
This isn’t the most monumental of arrests, but Taylor says that he’s been living a clean and sober lifestyle since 1998, when he was arrested for buying cocaine from an undercover police officer. LT has been doing TV work and says he wants to continue his acting career. Well, this is one way to do the latter.
Who’s going to break the news to Tom Bergeron? This is going to kill him.
While you ponder that, CLUBHOUSE CANCER has a nice LT retrospective for you to enjoy.
