NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) -Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid's son pleaded guilty Monday to gun and drug charges stemming from a road-rage dispute.
Britt Reid, 22, pleaded guilty to a string of pending charges - including carrying a firearm without a license, a felony - as his trial was to start, a Montgomery County court official said.
Prosecutors will seek six to 14 months of jail time, while the defense will seek probation. A sentencing date has not been set.
Britt Reid, 22, brandished a handgun at another motorist in suburban Philadelphia on Jan. 30, the same day his brother was arrested for a drug-related traffic crash.
Defense lawyer William Winning said afterward his client admitted what he did and was remorseful.
Besides the firearms charge, Reid also pleaded guilty to simple assault, possession of an instrument of crime and drug possession. Misdemeanor charges of making terroristic threats, making a false statement to law enforcement and possessing drug paraphernalia were dropped.
Reid told Judge Steven T. O'Neill he was being treated at the Malvern Institute, a program for addiction and psychiatric disorders.
His brother Garrett Reid, 24, faces a mandatory minimum of three days in jail after pleading guilty last month to drug and traffic offenses.
Garrett Reid admitted to using heroin the day he ran a red light in Plymouth Township and hit another car. He apologized in court and said he was attending a residential rehabilitation program.
Both sons lived at their parents' home in Villanova at the time.
Eagles spokesman Derek Boyko said neither the team nor coach Reid planned to comment on Monday's plea.
