Andy Reid has to deal with his troubled son

Britt’s legal troubles began in 2007 when he was sentenced to 8 to 23 months in prison on drug charges. The same year, he was involved in a road rage incident as well, which was settled out of court. The following year, he stepped into the coaching role just like his dad. And continued to be a part of the Chiefs’ coaching staff until 2020. Because of his legal issues, Reid was not offered a new contract.

However, things didn’t stop there. As per reports, in 2021, he was involved in a car crash that left multiple people injured, including a 5-year-old girl with a traumatic brain injury. Ariel Young was in a coma for about two weeks and in the hospital for about two months. Owing to this, the Chiefs had announced they would pay for her medical expenses.

In court, Reid admitted that he had been drinking before the Feb. 4, 2021 crash. He pleaded guilty in September 2022 to felony DWI.

He was sentenced to three years of prison, which recently has been amended to house arrest till Oct. 31, 2025. “Reid had completed his alcohol abuse treatment program and has served more prison time than most individuals convicted of similar offenses,” Gov. Parson spokesman Johnathan Shiflett said.
