Former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid has been charged with driving while intoxicated following a two-month investigation into the February crash that seriously injured a 5-year-old girl, a county prosecutor announced Monday.
According to documents released by the office of Jackson County (Mo.) prosecutor Jean Peters Baker, Reid had a blood alcohol concentration of .113 at the time of the Feb. 4 crash, in which his truck hit a vehicle that had stopped on the side of the road.
Authorities allege that Reid “acted with criminal negligence by driving at an excessive rate of speed, failing to be aware of a disabled vehicle, striking it, and as a result caused serious physical injury” to the 5-year-old girl, according to the charging documents.
The DWI charge is a class D felony in Missouri that is punishable by jail time or a fine. Reid was expected to surrender himself to authorities Monday, according to Baker’s office.
Baker said in a news release that her office “will vigorously pursue these charges and Reid is not receiving any favorable treatment.” Reid is the son of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and previously worked with the team’s linebackers. He parted ways with the team earlier this year, following the expiration of his contract.
