WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor has pleaded guilty to a drunken driving charge in Florida.
The Palm Beach Post reports that Taylor pleaded guilty Monday in Palm Beach County to DUI with injury or property damage. He was sentenced to one year of probation and a nine-month license suspension. He must also pay $1,500 and perform community service.
The Florida Highway Patrol says Taylor was arrested after crashing into a motor home and a patrol vehicle on Florida’s Turnpike in September 2016. Breath tests conducted five hours after the crash record blood alcohol levels of 0.082 and 0.084 percent. Florida law considers a driver impaired at 0.08 percent.
Taylor played 13 seasons with the Giants, helping the team win Super Bowl titles in 1987 and 1991.
