MIAMI - Former football star Lawrence Taylor has been released on bond following his arrest in a Miami-area traffic accident.
According to Miami-Dade County jail records, Taylor was charged Sunday with leaving the scene of an accident with property damage, a second-degree misdemeanor. He was released on $500 bond later that night. It was not immediately clear if Taylor has an attorney.
Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. James Durden says Taylor was involved in a hit-and-run crash Sunday in Hialeah.
Responding officers issued an alert for a "white vehicle missing the front right tire,'' said Durden.
"He said he had been involved in a crash,'' Durden said, adding Taylor said he thought he hit a guard rail and not another car.
"No injuries, significant damage to both vehicles,'' Durden said.
There were no injuries and troopers didn’t conduct a sobriety test.
