The Weehawken Police Department has released a report about the arrest of Giants quarterback Kyle Lauletta in New Jersey on Tuesday morning.

Lauletta has been charged with eluding police, obstructing administration of law and resisting arrest along with motor vehicle charges that include reckless driving and disregarding an officer’s instructions.

Per the report, Lauletta was observed driving recklessly in traffic as he closed in on a highway entrance and was told by an officer to continue driving in a marked lane. Lauletta allegedly came close to hitting the officer while making an illegal turn in an attempt to evade him and then refused to cooperate with another officer who stopped him a short time later.

The report also says that Lauletta’s car was involved in a similar incident on Monday and issued a summons by mail because he was not stopped at the scene.

Lauletta was a fourth-round pick this year and has not played this season. The prospect of that changing has been the subject of conversation this week as the Giants contemplate how to proceed after starting the year with seven losses in the last eight games, but Tuesday’s arrest may not have anyone with the team rushing to move him into the lineup.

  1. Every single one of us can agree that drivers like him deserve to be locked up. The laws of the road don’t apply to him and he can turn, merge and pass wherever he wants. He almost hit a traffic cop, cut several cars off making an illegal turn and endangered numerous drivers. To top it off, he refused to roll down his window and speak with the Police when he got stopped. This is one entitled D-Bag

  2. Those are some serious charges. When does the Commish suspend him? Oh, I forgot he is in Mara’s and Kraft’s back pocket so no suspension will be forthcoming…

  3. “Every single one of us can agree that drivers like him need to be locked up.”

    Oh please. Every single one of us should agree that this is much ado about nothing. Some self-important traffic cop claims that a driver “comes too close” to him/her. Some stupid single lane designation accomplishing nothing but to hold up traffic flow. We’d all get where we’re going more quickly without these unneeded obstructions.

  4. So he did this two days in a row? What’s the big deal with following traffic directions? It’s not that hard. Looks like a jerk move. Doesn’t say much about his character. What a tool.

  5. The entitlement and stupidity of some of these players. Here is was looking like he might have a chance to get a crack to start over Eli if he worked hard, and instead he tosses it away.

    Work your whole life, albeit a young one, for this opportunity and piss it away. SMH

    So you’re telling us that you never exceed the speed limit. You never roll through a stop sign. You never drive in the left hand lane on the interstate when you are not passing. Because, of course, if you did any of those things it would say something about your character and you’d be a tool.

    I guess my comment got deleted because I was commenting about what another poster said instead of posting about the article itself, which no other comments in this thread are doing, right?

  8. I grew up a Giants fan back in the 60’s before NE got a team. What a tool. The Giants need an adult to run the team & I don’t see anyone around to step up. They have a good GM, but need to make some serious moves. Their offense is middle of the pack & their defense is bottom of the NFL. Why not trade Beckham? You’re not going anywhere. And with Eli stinking it up you pick a running back? I am now a Bronco fan for the last 22 yrs and at least we moved an aging 3rd WR for a good pick & dumped salary. We picked up some studs in the draft and check out P Lindsey who is #4 in the NFL oh by the way. And now this? If the Giants had a real owner & GM he would be cut today. And start looking for a QB like T Tayor or Sam Bradford or Kyle Sloter or Robert Giffith. Sad that Eli has a no trade. They need someone who can stand up to Mara who thinks he’s Jerry Jones. Now they are trying to suck again to get the 1st draft pick. But picks aren’t any good if you can’t make the right ones. Cut Lauletta today & let him room with Chad Kelly & Johnny Football – LOL

  9. Maybe he was showing the Giant coaches that he is elusive and will be hard to sack since Manning has been sacked 31 times already this year. Just showing some initiative.

  10. Yet, some fans will still think OBJ is the knucklehead weird. Last i checked i don’t recall him evading police i doubt that will ever happen.

  11. “You’ve got to excuse him sir. You see, he just came to life, and doesn’t know much about such things.” What? It worked for Frosty.

    Ya cause obviously rolling through a stop sign is the same as reckless driving and resisting arrest. Great comparison genius
