Former Giants great Lawrence Taylor was arrested Thursday in Rockland County in connection with the reported rape of a 15-year-old girl, sources said.
Taylor allegedly beat and sexually assaulted the girl and has been charged with third-degree rape, the Journal News was reporting.
He will be arraigned Thursday afternoon.
The alleged assault happened at a hotel in Montebello, N.Y., earlier Thursday.
Taylor was jailed a short time later, the Ramapo Police Department said in a brief statement.
Details were scarce, but the town's police chief said more information would be provided at a 3 p.m. press conference.
Taylor, 51, played for the Giants from 1981 to 1993 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1999.
He also competed last year in ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."
