NEW YORK (CBS/AP) NFL great Lawrence Taylor looks like he needs a time out — to nap.
Taylor, a former New York Giants player, has been released on bond following his arrest in a Miami-area traffic accident.
Miami-Dade County jail records show that 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.
A Florida Highway Patrol spokesman says Taylor was involved in a hit-and-run crash Sunday in Hialeah. Taylor told investigators he thought he had hit a guard rail. There were no injuries and troopers didn't conduct a sobriety test.
Taylor is a former New York Giants linebacker. He was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 1999. He also competed in ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" this year.
