NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor was allegedly attacked on Thursday by his wife, Lynette Taylor, leading to her arrest for domestic violence and resisting arrest, according to Broward County, Florida, arrest records. 

As TMZ Sports reports, Lawrence claims that Lynette struck him in the back of the head during an argument in Florida, causing a minor laceration.

At her bond hearing on Thursday, Lynette told a judge that Lawrence's claim was a "lie." 

Lynette, who's 5-foot-6 and 145 lbs., according to arrest records, strongly denied her husband's allegations, bringing up his size (he's 6-foot-3) when asked about the incident. 

"My husband is a 300-pound linebacker. I didn’t hit him in the head … We had an argument and he lied to the police," she said, according to a video obtained by TMZ Sports. 

The judge eventually released her on $2,500 bond, but also ordered her to stay 500 feet away from Lawrence, possess no weapons and to only communicate with Lawrence and their children through a third party. Her previous domestic violence record, which has three arrests but no charges, moved the judge to enact a restraining order against Lynette. 

Broward County declined to provide The Huffington Post with the full police report, citing their records division's closure on Fridays.
