BRIDGEPORT, Pa. (AP) - The oldest son of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid was taken into custody again Tuesday after failing a drug test, prosecutors said.
Garrett Reid was handcuffed and taken to the Montgomery County Prison on Tuesday after surrendering at a probation office. He declined to comment as he entered the office.
The 24-year-old didn't show up for a scheduled test Oct. 15, according to prosecutors and his attorney, Ross Weiss. He is required to submit to random tests while awaiting sentencing on drug charges.
Reid has acknowledged he had used heroin when he ran a red light and hit another car in January. He and his younger brother Britt are to be sentenced Thursday in separate cases.
The 22-year-old Britt Reid, is already in jail in an unrelated case after violating his bail conditions.
He was charged in August with driving under the influence and drug violations. Police said they pulled over Britt Reid 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.
