Giants Rookie QB Kyle Lauletta Arrested After Almost Hitting Officer with Car

Giants rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta was arrested Tuesday morning for “various motor vehicle and related disorderly persons offenses” pertaining to a traffic violation in Weehawken, New Jersey according to ESPN.

Lauletta was trying to make a right turn from the wrong lane in his Jaguar to get to Route 495 West, according to a statement by the Weehawken Police Department. He was told to keep going straight, but Lauletta almost struck an officer while making the illegal turn and then “refused various instructions” after he was stopped by another officer at the end of the on-ramp.

He was charged with eluding police, obstructing administration of law, resisting arrest, reckless driving, disregarding an officer’s directions, improper turn in a marked traffic lane and failure to remain in a marked lane.

Police also said the same car was involved in a “similar incident” at the same location Monday, and a summons was issued by mail after the car owned by Lauletta had not stopped and left the scene.

The 22-year-old Lauletta was released on his recognizance, police said. A court date was not listed on the police statement.

“We were made aware of the situation this morning, and we have been in contact with Kyle,” Giants coach Pat Shurmur said in a statement. “We are still in the process of gathering information. This is obviously very disappointing.”
