Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig has been arrested for reckless driving in Florida, according to the Naples Daily News. Puig was traveling 110 miles per hour in a 70 zone on a section of I-75 called Alligator Alley.
This is not Puig's first run-in with the highway patrol this year. He was arrested in Hamilton County, Tenn., in April for going 97 mph in a 50 zone. Those charges were dropped in November due to Puig's otherwise clean record, his active involvement in the community, and the fact that he lived in another state.
The Cuban right fielder finished as the runner-up for the National League Rookie of the Year award in 2013 after bursting onto the scene by hitting .319/.391/.534 with 19 home runs in 104 games and helping the Dodgers reach the NLCS for the first time since 2009. Puig is known for his fast-paced, aggressive style of play, and his emotional (and sometimes cocky) on-field behavior was called into question multiple times during the season.
The team released an official statement on Puig's arrest on Sunday:
