Los Angeles Dodgers Superstar Outfielder Arrested
Yasiel Puig has been a sensation since coming to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the middle of the baseball season last year.
He has also stirred up some trouble during the season celebrating during homeruns, not hustling during plays, and playing with extra enthusiasm. Over the weekend Puig was arrested for reckless driving in Florida, going 110 in a 70 mph zone.
This is the second time the outfielder had been arrested for the same offense. Charges were dropped in November after being caught speeding in Tennessee as a minor leaguer earlier in the spring. He had to complete community service to have those charges dropped.
He was released on a $500 bond, and will await any sentencing in the near future.
The Dodgers released a statement shortly after the arrest, hoping he will change his ways in the near future.
