Los Angeles Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig received some good news today, as the State Attorney's office in Florida dropped the reckless driving charge against him, citing a lack of evidence.

Puig was allegedly driving 110 mph through an area of South Florida known as Alligator Alley, where the posted speed limit is 70 mph.

The speeding ticket he also received, however, still stands.

Since his arrest, Puig informed team president Stan Kasten that he will no longer be driving, and instead will employ a cousin to serve as his driver. Puig had also been arrested for speeding while still at Double-A Chattanooga. Those charges were eventually dismissed.

Aside from this arrest, most of the news that Puig has made this offseason has been positive, as he has held a number of impromptu baseball clinics at Dodger Stadium and in other areas throughout Los Angeles.
