New York Giants signal caller Kyle Lauletta was arrested on Tuesday morning or an incident that occurred while he driving to the team’s practice facility in East Rutherford, according to NJ.com’s Ryan Dunleavy.
According to the report, Lauletta, a fourth-round pick, nearly struck police with car when he failed to obey the directions of an officer.
“Sources in Weehawken with knowledge of the incident said the 23-year-old was trying to make a right turn from the wrong lane to get to Route 495 East, and was directed to keep going straight. Lauletta made the right turn and nearly ran over the officer directing traffic. He was stopped by another officer at the end of the on-ramp.”
“We are aware of the situation and are in contact with Kyle,” a Giants official said. “We are still gathering information.”
“We’re trying to do what we can to win this season and you always do what you can in the short run,” Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said Monday when asked about Lauletta’s playing chances, according to SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano.
“It’s hard not to look at things in the long run, but what’s important is we try to beat the 49ers [in two weeks].”
NFL Denies Golden Tate’s Appeal of Four-Game Ban
The NFL has denied New York Giants’ wide receiver Golden Tate’s appeal regarding a four-game ban and will leave the Giants without a top target for the first part of the 2019 season, according to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan.
Tate, who made his appeal in front of an arbitrator on Tuesday, tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance, leading to the suspension, but Tate claims that the positive result came from prescribed fertility medication.
While Tate will be allowed to participate in all preseason games, and will be able to participate in practice as well, he will not be available to play for the first four games of the season.
Tate will lose $116,176 per game during his suspension, totally $465,000 in salary lost by the time he is eligible to return.
With Tate out, the Giants will lean more on Sterling Shepard, Cody Latimer, and Bennie Fowler to pick up the slack until Tate comes back.
“This past April, during the off-season, my wife and I decided to see a specialist for fertility planning. I started the treatment prescribed to me and just days later I discovered it contained an ingredient that is on the league’s banned substance list,” Tate said, via a statement he issues last month.
“I immediately discontinued use, I reported the situation to the Independent Administrator of the NFL Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances, and I spoke with my coaches and general manager. I did all of this well before a failed test was even confirmed.
“Per NFL protocol, an initial suspension was imminent, but myself and the Giants organization are confident in the facts, and eagerly await my appeal to put this behind us.”

Giants’ Kamrin Moore Charged With Assault
New York Giants safety Kamrin Moore has been charged with third-degree aggravated assault, according to NJ.com’s Ryan Dunleavy.
Per the report, the Union County Prosecutor’s Office alleges that Moore punched a woman, stepped on her neck, and knocked her unconscious during a domestic violence incident, causing the woman to suffer “bruising, swelling, and abrasions”.
The filing states that the woman in question was involved in a fight with another female at Moore’s residence. Police say that when the alleged victim fell to the ground, Moore attacked her.
Moore signed with the Giants following his release from the New Orleans Saints, and the team has suspended Moore pending the investigation.
