Former Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid, the son of head coach Andy Reid, has been charged with Driving While Intoxicated for a crash that seriously injured a 5-year-old girl according to 41 Action News in Kansas City.
The Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office announced today that Reid has been charged with DWI, a class D felony with a potential prison sentence of one to seven years. Prosecutors have requested a $100,000 bond but it is not known if Reid is currently in custody.
Reid, who had a previous drunk driving conviction, admitted to police at the scene that he had been drinking before slamming into another vehicle stopped at the side of the road to assist another motorist. Prosecutors revealed that an analysis of the crash site concluded that Reid was driving 83.9 MPH and had a blood alcohol content of .113. They also announced that Reid had had "prior alcohol contacts in Pennsylvania". His previous conviction in Pennsylvania has been weel-documented but this is apparently the first mention of another incident in Arizona.
Ariel Young, the 5-year-old victim, suffered permanent brain damage according to her family but has reportedly been showing some slow but steady improvement. Another child in the vehicle was also hospitalized but did not suffer serious injuries.
