Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid is in trouble with the law. He has admitted to drinking and driving on Thursday night, according to Pro Football Talk.
Reid has had problems in the past. Despite his past, he has been employed by the Chiefs since 2013.
The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Reid will not join the rest of the coaching staff this weekend. He’ll miss the Super Bowl.
The Chiefs face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday night in Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Florida at Raymond James Stadium. The kickoff for the game is slated to start at 6:30 pm EST.
“The organization has been made aware of a multi-vehicle accident involving outside linebackers coach, Britt Reid,” the team said in a statement. “We are in the process of gathering information, and we will have no further comment at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved.”
Two children — including one seriously — were injured in the crash. Reid allegedly hit two other vehicles.
The incident happened near the Chiefs’ practice facility on Interstate 435 at 9 pm local time.
He reportedly failed the sobriety tests performed by the law enforcement authorities. He also had blood drawn following the accident.
Reid allegedly crashed into two cars that were on the side of the road. One of the cars had broken down before the accident.
He was previously arrested for a road rage incident. The allegations were that he pointed a gun to a man’s face.
Also, in 2007, Britt, along with his late brother Garrett, were arrested for running a “drug emporium” outside of their house.
Both men were sentenced to 8 to 23 months in jail.
