NAPLES, Florida (AP) -- Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was arrested on a reckless driving charge for the second time this year after officers clocked him going 110 mph in a 70 mph zone.

A news release from the Florida Highway Patrol said a white Mercedes driven by the 23-year-old Cuban defector was pulled over at 9.30 a.m. on Saturday.

Authorities said Puig was arrested and charged with reckless driving and taken to the Collier County Jail for processing. Puig lives in the Miami area during the offseason.

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

In April, when he was still in the minors, Puig was charged with reckless driving and speeding in Tennessee. The charges were dismissed in November after Puig completed community service in Los Angeles.
