Britt Reid, 22, pleaded guilty last month to driving under the influence of a controlled substance over the summer. But a Montgomery County judge paroled him Friday to drug court and he will likely be released from prison by Monday, prosecutors said.
Under the drug program, Reid will undergo regular drug tests and must show up in court once a week, Senior Deputy Attorney General E. Marc Costanzo said. Reid also must continue to hold down a job.
Britt Reid pleaded guilty Jan. 17 to DUI and drug charges filed when he drove into a shopping cart in a parking lot in August while out on bail on a road rage charge. He has since been sentenced to eight to 23 months in prison in the road rage case, in which he flashed a gun at another motorist.
There was no answer at the office of Reid's attorney Friday afternoon and the voice mailbox was full.
