Lawrence Taylor has been arrested for rape, CBS 2 reports. Police, who say the victim is a 16-year-old runaway, accuse Taylor of third-degree rape and third-degree patronizing of a prostitute.

The New York Post reported earlier that Taylor, who is 51, and the teenager met through a pimp. reported that the rape charge "involves having intercourse with a minor."

A second man has been arrested in connection to the incident. Police have charged 36-year-old Rasheed Davis with false imprisonment, assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

A bottle of alcohol was found in the hotel where the incident allegedly occurred, but no drugs were discovered.

Taylor's third wife, Lynette Taylor, tells TMZ that the accusations are "all bulls--t" and a "setup." She says the timing of the accusation is peculiar, since it comes days after A&E aired a documentary featuring her husband.

Taylor was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident last November. He was arrested multiple times in the 1990s on drug charges and for failing to make child support payments.
