Yasiel Puig arrested for reckless driving, was clocked at 110 mph

Yasiel PuigLos Angeles Dodgers rookie outfielder Yasiel Puig was arrested Saturday morning in Florida on reckless driving charges after being clocked doing 110 mph in a 70-mph zone, according to a report.

The Naples Daily News reports that Puig was driving his 2013 Mercedes when he was caught speeding on Alligator Alley.

You may recall that Puig was arrested and charged with speeding, reckless driving and driving without proof of insurance in Chattanooga in April. He was driving 97 in a 50-mph zone that time.

Puig was in Chattanooga playing for the Dodgers’ Double-A minor league team to start the season. He was eventually called up to the bigs by the Dodgers in June.

Apparently Puig drives like he plays — full speed and without much caution. He batted .319 with 21 doubles and 19 home runs in 104 games this season and finished second in NL Rookie of the Year voting.
