TMZ Sports has obtained dash cam footage from Yasiel Puig's speeding arrest ... which shows the L.A. Dodgers star being reamed out and handcuffed by a PISSED OFF Highway Patrol officer.

As we previously reported, Puig was arrested in Collier County, Florida on Dec. 28 when officers say he was driving a white Benz at speeds of 110 mph, with his mom and two other passengers in the car.

During the arrest, the cop becomes ENRAGED when he learns that Puig was driving so fast with his mother in the car -- and begins to yell at the Cuban born baseball star in Spanish.   
He also tells Puig that he could have killed his mother.

During the stop, Puig's mother is crying hysterically as Yasiel is taken into the back of the squad car.

At one point, one of the troopers tells Yasiel in Spanish,  "You don't care about your own mother's life?!"

As Yasiel is being led to the squad car, he desperately pleads with the trooper to let him go ... saying in Spanish, "Officer, I'm sorry ... I'm begging you, sir."

One of the male passengers in Yasiel's car gets out of the car and approaches the arresting officer -- who FLIPS OUT ... and screams at the guy to get back in the Benz.

Yasiel and his mom, if they were offended or upset by the cops reaction of yelling then arresting him, they should stay away from TMZ and other internet sites because commenters' rants are even more harsh. Guy has some serious speed appropriate issues and apparently it starts with his mom because last time I tried going over speed limit by like 5 mph, I got my azz chewed for a good while afterwards.

You no Tmz! I have to side with the cops on this one.Athough many people speed,why do people with money or fame feel that they have the green light to speed whenever,and where ever they desire.

Puig is living life like he plays baseball: with reckless disregard. If he lives long enough to mature, he will someday be a great player.

Remember that none of these people know what they are doing. They are fresh from Cuba and have no idea how to act here. Dodgers need to be doing a better job mentoring him or they can kiss any return on their investment goodbye. He's doing what anyone in his situation would do. Somebody help this guy figure out how to freaking drive!

Why does every single cop have to say how you could have killed somebody? Just writer the stupid ticked and save the lecture for mom.

Obviously a little overreaction from the officer. Ok he broke a law give him a ticket, talk like normal people do and have a nice day. Do not let idiots ruin your day! - De la vega.

It is not the officers job to scold or chide. Just do his job and either arrest or give a citation. Unless he/she is perfect, shut the &$*# up and do your job. I had an officer ask me to apologize before and I said only if he does not write the ticket. When he refused, I refused.
