New York Giants backup quarterback Kyle Lauletta was arrested in Weehawken Tuesday morning while driving to the team's practice facility in East Rutherford.
Sources in Weehawken with knowledge of the incident said the 23-year-old was trying to make a right turn from the wrong lane to get to Route 495 East, and was directed to keep going straight. Lauletta made the right turn and nearly ran over the officer directing traffic. He was stopped by another officer at the end of the on-ramp. One of the sources said that Lauletta did the same thing yesterday morning, but he was not stopped. Police did see his license plate and he is being issued two summonses in the mail, the source said. Police have not responded to requests for more information on the arrest.
Lauletta has not taken a snap this year and was declared inactive for the Giants' last game, a 20-13 loss to the Redskins that dropped the team to 1-7. The Giants have a bye this week and don't play again until Nov. 12 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Natrually some are already having a field day with his arrest.
Looks like Eli is safe for now.
