Reports: Yasiel Puig’s reckless driving charge dropped in Florida.

According to multiple reports Tuesday, the Florida state attorney’s office has dropped a reckless driving charge filed against Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig.

According to the News-Press of Fort Myers, Florida, “to prove reckless driving, the state must prove the defendant drove with a willful or wanton disregard for people or property, according to the memorandum. Speeding alone is not grounds for a reckless driving charge.”

Puig was arrested and released on bail after being clocked driving 110 mph on a 70-mph highway in December.
