Lawrence Taylor, the Hall of Fame linebacker whose on-field brilliance was often overshadowed by his off-field problems, has been arrested again.

Taylor was arrested on suspicion of DUI on Friday, the Florida Highway Patrol confirmed to WPTV.

Police say Taylor was driving a Bentley on the Turnpike when he hit a motorhome, then sideswiped a patrol vehicle. No injuries were reported. Taylor was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail.

The 57-year-old Taylor was a 10-time first-team All-Pro, three-time Defensive Player of the Year, two-time Super Bowl champion and 1986 NFL MVP. But throughout his NFL career he was plagued by problems relating to substance abuse, problems that have continued into his retirement.
