NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) -Eagles coach Andy Reid's son Britt pleaded guilty Monday to gun and drug charges stemming from a road-rage dispute.
The 22-year-old 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 was accused of brandishing 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 that his client admitted what he did and was remorseful. Reid also pleaded guilty to several misdemeanors, including assault, making terroristic threats, possessing drugs and drug paraphernalia, and lying to authorities.
Britt Reid told Judge Steven T. O'Neill that he was being treated at the Malvern Institute, a program for addiction and psychiatric disorders. According to the institute's Web site, clients stay in the inpatient program for five to 28 days.
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 the coach planned to comment on Monday's plea.
