Lawrence Taylor‘s DUI case just went from bad to worse — because he was just hit with more severe charges … and now faces QUADRUPLE the jail time … TMZ Sports has learned.
Taylor was arrested on Sept. 2nd in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida after crashing into a mobile home and a police cruiser while allegedly drunkenly driving his Bentley.
Following the arrest, Taylor pled not guilty to 1 count of DUI — which carried a max sentence of 6 months in jail.
Now, TMZ Sports has obtained court docs which show prosecutors have substituted the charge with 2 counts of “DUI causing or contributing to injury to person or property.”
Each count carries a max sentence of 1 year behind bars.
LT is due back in court next month.
