WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WAVY) – Baltimore Ravens rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro was arrested in Williamsburg over the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Major Greg Riley said an officer was on patrol in the 300 block of Richmond Road Saturday when he spotted a group outside The College Delly cursing and yelling. The group got into a cab, then the cab lurched forward and the group got out. The driver flagged the officer to come over.

The driver told the officer a member of the group, identified as Lorenzo Taliaferro, broke one of the cab windows.

The officer caught up with Taliaferro and placed him under arrest. He was taken to jail where he was charged with drunk in public and destruction of property, both misdemeanors.

He has since been released from jail.

Taliaferro is from Yorktown and attended Bruton High School in Williamsburg.

The Coastal Carolina running back was the Baltimore Ravens’ second fourth-round pick and number 138 overall.
