 CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Prosecutors in Tennessee have dismissed charges of reckless driving and speeding against Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig (yah-SEEL' pweeg).
Neal Pinkston, executive assistant district attorney for Hamilton County, says the charges were dropped Wednesday. Pinkston says Puig has completed at least 12 hours of community service in Los Angeles.
A Chattanooga Police Department report says Puig went 97 mph in a 50-mph zone and was going in and out of his lane before he was pulled over at about 1 a.m. April 28. The report says Puig indicated he was serving as a designated driver.
Puig hit .319 with 19 home runs and 42 RBI and is a National League Rookie of the Year candidate. The 22-year-old Cuban defector played with the Dodgers' Double-A team in Chattanooga before his June call-up.
