Former Kansas City Chiefs linebackers coach, and son of head coach Andy Reid, Britt Reid, has been officially charged with a felony for driving while intoxicated for his involvement in a car crash that left a 5-year-old girl critically injured.
An attorney for the girl’s family stated last month that the girl suffered a devastating brain injury that has left her unable to speak or walk.
The Jackson County court ruled in favor of a felony sentencing for Reid who could face up to 7 years behind bars as his maximum sentence.
Reid was posted a total of a $100,000 bond and courts ordered Reid to not consume alcohol or visit any place that alcohol is the primary item sold. He also must report to a human-service clinic for supervision prior to his trial. Reid is additionally subjected to random drug screenings and must use both an alcohol and GPS monitoring devices.
Police analysis confirms the drunken act of the crash was a result of Reid’s excessive speed of 83.9 mph, just 1.9 seconds prior to collision off a highway ramp.
Britt Reid was not fully charged by the Jackson County court, as much evidence lacked for other charges, but officials confirm they will attempt to vigorously pursue Reid after his senseless actions.
The Kansas City Chiefs continue their class-act type of organization by regularly staying in contact with the family’s designated representative during this challenging time.
Britt Reid will face a trial soon and possibly be charged more and sentenced for multiple years.
