Ravens rookie running back Lorenzo Taliaferro was arrested over the Memorial Day Weekend and charged with breaking a taxi cab window, according to the Virginia Gazette.

Maj. Greg Riley of the Williamsburg Police Department told the Gazette that officer J.A. Wagner was on patrol early Saturday morning and saw the incident take place. Details:

Wagner observed a group near the College Delly get into a cab. The taxi lurched forward, then the group got out. The officer said he heard yelling and cursing among the group.

The cab driver motioned to Wagner, and told that a member of the group whom he identified as Taliaferro, gripped the window and broke it.

Police report that Taliaferro, the Ravens' 2014 fourth-round pick out of Coastal Carolina, left the scene but was found a block away. He was charged with two misdemeanors: being drunk in public and destruction of property.

It's been a busy offseason for the Ravens, but for all the wrong reasons.

Taliaferro recently signed a four-year, $2.52 million rookie deal that includes a $300,584 signing bonus.
