Britt Reid Taken Into Custody Over Incident

Britt Reid leaves court 

The 22-year-old son of Eagles head coach Andy Reid is now in police custody in Montgomery County following an incident earlier this afternoon at a shopping center.  Britt Reid is now at the Plymouth Meeting Police Department after he was either asked to leave or was escorted out of the Dick’s Sporting Goods store and then took off in his pickup truck before ramming it into some shopping carts in the parking lot.  While there were no injuries reported, police arriving on the scene transported Reid to the hospital for a blood test for alcohol.  Reid is currently awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty earlier this month to a weapons charge in connection with a road rage incident in January.

According to the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office, today’s latest flap involving Britt Reid is likely to impact his sentencing and bail from the previous case but no decision will be made pending the results of the blood alcohol test.  A team spokesman for the Eagles says Coach Reid will have no comment in Britt Reid’s latest run in with the law.

    What a tragedy for a parent. At the sons’ ages I suspect they’ve had drug problems for some time, which makes recovery that more difficult. I’m not an Eagles’s fan, but think Reid is an excellent coach. However, it would be impossible for any father to excel at his job with this burden (I speak from experience). I hope Philly fans give this good man a break. Also, I doubt that his troubles are not the only problems the team face. For example, it’s obvious that Donanvan (another good guy) is hurting. Let’s hope the fans support their team without undue criticism. I say all this as a Patriot fan from NYC. After all, it’s a game — not life.
