Legendary New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor has been arrested in Florida for DUI after police say he crashed while trying to change lanes on a freeway.

Cops say Taylor was driving his Bentley through Palm Beach at around 5.20pm on Friday when he attempted to move between lanes.

But during the maneuver police say the 57-year-old clipped a motorhome, causing his car to sideswipe a police cruiser, knocking the side mirror off.

Nobody was injured during the accident, cops told WPTV, and there was no significant damage to the cruiser.

However, Taylor was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail where he was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence.
