Dodgers prospect Yasiel Puig was activated from the disabled list by the Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts on Monday, nine days after being sidelined by a sprained right thumb.

One night after he was arrested for driving 97 mph in a 50 mph zone, and was reportedly serving as the designated driver, Puig is back in the lineup for the Lookouts at designated hitter, batting third in the first game of a doubleheader against Jackson.

Per David Paschall of the Chattanooga Times Free Press, Puig's police report showed it took some time before he pulled over.

The arresting officer wrote "it took blue lights and multiple siren blasts to get the driver to stop."

Puig entered Monday hitting .333/.385/.625 with three home runs, three doubles, two stolen bases, nine runs batted in and nine runs scored in 13 games for Chattanooga. He struck out in his first at-bat on Monday, against Chance Ruffin.
