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.
``His sentencing is Thursday, and we hope that the judge will listen to our arguments and will come up with sentence that will include a plan of treatment that will lead to rehabilitation,'' defense lawyer Ross Weiss said. ``We do have a plan that we will present to the court.''
The 24-year-old Reid didn't show up for a scheduled test Oct. 15, according to prosecutors and 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.
Britt Reid, 22, 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.
