PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. (AP) -An adult son of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid, awaiting sentencing in a road-rage case, was detained Thursday on suspicion of driving while impaired.
Britt Reid, 22, of Villanova, failed a sobriety test in a store parking lot at about 3:45 p.m. and was given a blood test, Assistant Police Chief Joseph Lawrence of Plymouth Township said.
Reid struck a shopping cart when officers activated their lights, Lawrence said.
Police planned to release him while they wait for test results that could take several weeks. No charges were filed.
Reid is free on bail pending sentencing in the Jan. 30 road-rage case, in which police said he brandished a handgun at another driver. He pleaded guilty last week to gun and drug charges and faces a possible six to 14 months in jail.
Defense lawyers did not immediately return phone messages Thursday.
Senior Deputy Attorney General Marc Costanzo, who prosecuted the first case, said an impaired-driving charge could violate Reid's bail conditions. Reid's lawyers have said he is undergoing outpatient treatment at a substance-abuse center.
Reid's 24-year-old brother, Garrett, faces at least 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.
