CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Los Angeles Dodgers outfield prospect Yasiel Puig faces charges of reckless driving, speeding and driving without proof of insurance in Tennessee after police say he went 97 mph in a 50-mph zone early Sunday.
The Chattanooga Police Department report says Puig indicated he was serving as a designated driver when he was arrested at about 1 a.m. The report says Puig's car was going in and out of his lane and that ``it took blue lights and multiple siren blasts'' to get him to stop his car.
Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said Sunday in a statement that the team takes Puig's arrest seriously and will handle discipline internally.
Puig, a 22-year-old Cuban defector, is hitting .333 with three homers and nine RBIs in 13 games for the Dodgers' Double-A farm team in Chattanooga. Puig signed a $42 million, seven-year contract last summer.
