Football hall of famer and DWTS contestant LAWRENCE TAYLOR arrested and charged with rap.

Ramapo NY detectives say the former NY Giant is charged with raping a teen runaway prostie at a hotel Upstate New York.

Taylor, 51, allegedly beat and sexually assaulted a teen age hooker – a runaway whose hotel rendezvous with Taylorl was set up by a pimp, a police source divulged.

LT was inducted in the NFL Hall of Fame in 1999 and competed on Dancing With the Stars last year and has had a highly publicized struggle with drug addictions and multiple legal worries since retiring.

In 2001 he was convicted of possessing drug paraphernalia in New Jersey after cops found crack cocaine instruments including a butane torch.

Taylor also drew five years federal probation in 2000 for income tax evasion.
