According to the report, Lawrence Taylor told police that Lynette hit him in the back of the head, leaving him with a minor laceration.

"That's a lie. My husband is a 300 pound linebacker,' she told authorities after the incident. A judge has ordered the two to stay at least 500 feet from each other.
