CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Jail records show that Los Angeles Dodgers prospect Yasiel Puig was arrested in Tennessee on charges of reckless driving, speeding and driving without proof of insurance.

Hamilton County jail records posted online show Puig was arrested Sunday by Chattanooga police. No further details were available in the records online, and a Chattanooga police spokesman reached after hours did not have further information about the arrest.

An officer reached at the jail confirmed Puig was released on his own recognizance.

Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said in a statement that the team takes Puig's arrest seriously and would handle discipline internally.

The 22-year-old Cuban defector began the regular season with the Dodgers' double-A affiliate in Chattanooga, the Lookouts, where he was hitting .333 with three home runs.
