Police complaint: Lawrence Taylor admitted paying for sex

A police complaint claims former Giant Lawrence Taylor admits paying for "sex acts" at an upstate New York hotel where investigators say he raped a 16-year-old girl.

Taylor was charged yesterday with third-degree rape and patronizing a prostitute. His attorney has denied the charges.Police believe the teenager is a runaway from the Bronx who was forced into prostitution.

Rasheed Davis is accused of bringing the girl to the hotel. Investigators say Davis told the girl to lie about her age to Taylor and say she was 19.

Taylor is due back in court June 12.
