FORT MYERS, Fla. - A reckless driving charge against a major league baseball star clocked doing 110 mph on Alligator in Collier County last December has been dropped.

The State Attorney's Office found there was insufficient evidence against Yaisel Puig to prove that he was driving recklessly when he was caught going 40 mph over the speed limit.

The speeding ticket given to Puig by the Florida Highway Patrol still stands.
