NAPLES, Fla. -- Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is heard in a dash cam video asking a Florida trooper to let him go after an officer clocked him driving 110 mph in a 70 mph zone.

The Florida Highway Patrol video of the traffic stop was released Wednesday.

The 23-year-old Cuban defector was charged Dec. 28 with reckless driving in Naples. Puig lives in the Miami area during the offseason.

The trooper asks Puig in Spanish why he was speeding and tells him he was going to jail for "putting your mom in danger." Puig's mother was in the car when officers pulled him over.

In April last year, Puig was clocked going 97 in a 50 mph zone in Tennessee, though those charges were later dismissed.
