After the news hit today that Lawrence Taylor was arrested overnight at a hotel in Suffern, NY., and charged with statutory rape, the WALL STREET JOURNAL contacted Taylor’s current wife Lynette Taylor.
Reached on her cellphone, Taylor’s wife Lynette said, “Im watching the news just like you. That’s it. I’m watching the news just like you.” Asked if she’d had any contact with her husband since the early morning arrest, Mrs. Taylor said a third time, “I’m watching the news just like you. Have a good day.”
