NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A son of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid was sentenced Thursday to up to 23 months in jail for smashing into another motorist's car while high on heroin.
Garrett Reid, 24, could leave jail early if he applies for and is accepted into a special drug court program that would require him to hold down a job, report to authorities regularly and undergo rigorous drug testing.
Reid tested positive for heroin and admitted having used it, and authorities found syringes with heroin and testosterone in his SUV. He was taken into custody again Tuesday after failing a drug test, prosecutors said. He had missed a scheduled test last month, prosecutors and his attorney said.
Reid's 22-year-old brother, Britt, also was in court Thursday to be sentenced for pointing a handgun at another driver Jan. 30, the same day as his brother's crash. He pleaded guilty to a string of charges, including carrying a firearm without a license, a felony.
Both sons lived at their parents' home in suburban Villanova at the time of their arrests.
Andy Reid was in court Thursday. He had taken a five-week leave from the team in the offseason to deal with his family's troubles.
