Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig apologized publicly for his most recent reckless driving arrest. On stage at the team's FanFest on Saturday, Puig was asked by host Alanna Rizzo what he wanted to say to the fans about his recent run-in with a Florida state trooper. Puig, laughing, at first replied, "Nada," the Spanish word for "nothing." When the laughter subsided, Puig said, "I was driving fast. It was my fault. I'm not ever going to drive fast. Or slow. I now have a driver. I want to apologize to the city of Los Angeles and to these fans. I'm done with speeding." Puig later declined to speak with reporters. A reckless driving charge against Puig was dropped by the Florida state attorney's office last week, but he still received a ticket for driving 110 mph in a 70 mph zone. Reckless driving charges stemming from an April arrest in Tennessee for driving 97 mph in a 50 mph zone were dropped in November. Puig, 23, informed the Dodgers last month that he had hired a cousin to drive him around.
