Former NFL star Lawrence Taylor was arrested in Florida last week on a DUI charge, after crashing into a cop car.

According to TMZ, the 57-year-old crashed his silver Bentley into a police car at around 5:22 pm on Friday (Sept. 2), and after officers got a look at him, they knew he was drunk. Officers on the scene said he had bloodshot eyes, was unsteady on his feet, and stunk like cigars and booze.

When police asked him where he was, he responded "Broward" -- a different county, located about an hour south of the crash scene. When asked how much he had to drink, he reportedly said, "Apparently too much."

Taylor was ultimately arrested, but told police he suffered an injury during the crash and felt like he was going to throw up, so he was taken to a nearby hospital before being booked into jail.

He's due in court at the end of the month.
