NAPLES, FLA. (AP) - The Florida Highway Patrol says that Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig has been arrested after officers clocked him driving 110 mph in a 70 mph zone.

Authorities say Puig was arrested and charged with reckless driving and taken to the Collier County jail for processing.

Dodgers spokesman Joe Jareck declined to comment on Puig’s arrest.

Puig hit .319 with 19 home runs and 42 RBIs.
