Deputies from the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office were sent to an apartment in the city where Taliafero received emergency medical care. Later, paramedics arrived and transported him by ambulance.
He was drafted in 2014, the same year that Ravens split from a Ray Rice pursuit when a video surfaced of him punching and dragging his future wife into an elevator in Atlantic City.
The team took on Taliaferro in the fourth round, the hard-nosed runner played three seasons until 2016, but primarily as a repository for another sensation, Just Astin Forset.

He was forced to run 18 sets of races by Ravens coach John on Harbor as punishment, ESPN reports.
After the episode, the 6-foot, 232-pound crusher played the best game of his career, rushing 91 yards against the Browns in Cleveland.
In 2017, he was replaced as a defender, but the team cut him off before the start of the regular season.
