Yardbarker.com reports that Britt Reid, a former Assistant Coach to the Kansas City Chiefs, has told those familiar with the matter that he plans to plead guilty to the charge of driving while intoxicated and causing serious physical injury in 2021.
Britt Reid is the son of the current head coach for the Chiefs, Andy Reid, and is charged for his role in an accident on February 4, 2021, that seriously injured two children. A five-year-old suffered a traumatic brain injury. The other child was also seriously injured in the crash.
Prosecutors say that Reid had been driving an estimated 84 miles per hour and had a blood-alcohol level of 0.113 at the time of the crash. Reid admitted to having two to three drinks before the crash. He also informed police officers responding to the scene that he was on the prescription drug Adderall.
Reid had a prior DUI conviction in 2007. In this latest incident, Reid initially entered a plea of not guilty in April 2021. When informed that his trial was set to begin on September 26, Reid said he would change his plea to guilty.
In November 2021, the Kansas City Chiefs organization said it would commit to the lifetime medical care and support of the crash victims.
Reid could serve up to seven years in prison if convicted of the charge.
