SHARE EX-GIANT TAYLOR, REPORTER SCUFFLE - THEN SWAP APOLOGIES

Lawrence Taylor, on what was to be an inspirational visit to the winless New York Giants, grabbed a reporter around the throat after the two exchanged expletives.

Taylor and Ernie Palladino of Gannett Suburban Newspapers were quickly separated after the incident around 5:20 p.m. and they apologized to each other about an hour later. Palladino was not injured.The trouble started when Taylor walked off the practice field and several reporters asked to speak with him. Taylor, who worked as a television commentator last year, refused and started to walk away.
