New York Giant rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta was arrested Tuesday morning for “various motor vehicles and related accidents” related to traffic violations in Weehawken, New Jersey.
Lauletta tried to make a right turn from the wrong lane in his Jaguar to get to Route 495 West, according to a statement from the Weehawken Police Department. He was told to continue straight, but Lauletta almost struck an officer when he made the illegal twist and then “refused different instructions” after he had been stopped by another officer at the end of the ramp.
He was accused of eluding police, preventing law enforcement, opposing arrest, ruthless driving, ignoring the officer’s instructions, incorrectly turning in a marked traffic lane and failure to stay in a marked lane.
As the giants switch into reconstruction, they may want to see what they have in young QB Lauletta, especially if Eli Manning is fighting.
Lowlights: The Rams Todd Gurley has more touchdowns than the entire Giants team in the first half.
] The police also said that the same car was involved in a “similar incident” in the same place on Monday, and a call was issued by mail after the car owned by Lauletta had not stopped and left the scene.
“We were made aware of the situation in the morning, and we have been in contact with Kyle,” says giant coach Pat Shurmur in a statement. “We are still collecting information. This is obviously very disappointing. “
Lauletta was Giant’s fourth round of elections this year from Richmond. He has not yet climbed a game.
It appeared to be a growing feeling that the giants (1-7) could play him on Monday, Shurmur said “we’ll see” when we asked if Eli Manning would start following the week-end, on the way to San Francisco 49ers.
Lauletta was not on Tuesday’s practice, according to several players, although Shurmur said at his press conference that everyone was out there. It was a failed opportunity, being a veteran team and rookie quarterback probably hanging out to receive some first snaps.
Most players did not know why Lauletta was out of workout They heard and read about the traffic accident under the open-air storage room after training.
“Really surprised surprised,” said comrade Saquon Barkley. “I do not know too much about it. It’s more a matter for Coach Shurmur. “
” I know Kyle really well and it was definitely shocking. I do not know too much about talking about it, to be honest, but I know it’s really not something. I know it sounds crazy, but I know it’s probably not crazy because of the person he is. “
