Giants backup QB Lauletta arrested for disobeying police

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants rookie backup quarterback Kyle Lauletta has been arrested on motor vehicle and related disorderly persons offenses while driving near a road construction site to practice.

Weehawken police said the 22-year-old Lauletta was stopped Tuesday morning for failing to obey a police officer's order to continue driving straight in his 2017 Jaguar.

The report says Lauletta almost hit the officer while making an illegal turn. He was stopped by a second police officer and refused to produce a driver's license or exit the car.

Police say he was arrested and charged with eluding police, obstructing administration of law and resisting arrest. He was also charged with reckless driving, disregarding an officer's directions, improper turn and failure to remain in a marked lane.

Lauletta was not immediately available for comment. Giants coach Pat Shurmur says in a statement that the team has been in contact with Lauletta and is still gathering information.
