NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) -A son of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid failed a drug test while awaiting sentencing on drug charges.
Garrett Reid tested positive for a small amount of morphine and will be allowed only limited leave from his family's home in Villanova until his sentencing, a Montgomery County judge ruled. He is not permitted to drive, a prosecutor said.
The morphine could suggest the 24-year-old again used heroin, which he admitted using before a January car crash, senior deputy attorney general Marc Costanzo said. Reid faces a minimum of three days in jail on crash-related charges.
``It's hard to beat an intravenous ... heroin addiction. It's not easy,'' Costanzo said.
Reid spent time in an inpatient rehabilitation program after his arrest. Defense lawyer Ross Weiss declined to comment Friday about further treatment, but said he expects Reid to be sentenced within a month.
Reid's 22-year-old brother, Britt, was charged Wednesday with driving under the influence and drug violations while awaiting sentencing for a road-rage incident earlier this year. Police said they found painkillers, amphetamines and antidepressants when they searched him and his vehicle in the latest incident. His bail has been revoked, and he is in jail awaiting sentencing on drug and gun charges.
Reid has declined comment on his sons' legal troubles.
