Yasiel Puig, Los Angeles Dodgers

Yasiel Puig was arrested for reckless driving in Collier County, Florida, on December 28, according to TMZ.

The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder was clocked driving 110 mph in a 70 mph zone, USA Today reported. He was arrested and taken to Collier County Jail, where he was released a few hours later on $500 bond.

The arrest footage was released on Tuesday, showing a handcuffed Puig — donning pink shorts and flip flops — being taken to the back seat of the police cruiser.
