Former Giants great Lawrence Taylor was busted last night in Florida for taking off after he was involved in a car accident, authorities said.
The 50-year-old NFL Hall of Famer was arrested in Dade County for "leaving the scene of accident/property damage," shortly before 10 p.m., Florida officials told The Post.
Taylor, who played his entire career with Big Blue and won two Super Bowls, was quickly released on $500 bond.
A seemingly coherent and calm Taylor was not suspected of DWI, despite the bloodshot eyes in his mug shot, according to TMZ.com. Police did not give him a breathalyzer.

It was not immediately clear if anyone was injured in the accident or where it took place.
Taylor twice tested positive for cocaine during his playing days, and was arrested two times after he retired for buying drugs from undercover cops.
The former grid great was in the news recently after he competed on "Dancing with the Stars" last spring.
