NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A son of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid was ordered back to jail Tuesday after missing a drug test.
Garrett Reid, 24, didn't show up for a scheduled test on Monday, according to prosecutors and his attorney, Ross Weiss. He is required to submit to random tests while awaiting sentencing on drug charges.
``He called and told his probation officer he couldn't get there,'' Weiss said Tuesday. ``He didn't get there yesterday and he didn't go today.''
Reid admitted using heroin when he ran a red light and hit another car in January. He tested positive for a small amount of morphine in August, and a Montgomery County judge barred him from driving but allowed him limited leave from his family's home in Villanova.
Reid's younger brother, Britt, 22, remains jailed in an unrelated case after violating his bail conditions.
Britt Reid was charged in August with driving under the influence and drug violations. Police said they pulled him over for suspicion of drunken driving and found painkillers, amphetamines and antidepressants when they searched him and his vehicle.
At the time, he was awaiting sentencing for a road-rage incident that happened the same day as his older brother's crash in January.
Both brothers are scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 1.
