KANSAS CITY, Missouri (AP) – Former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid pleaded not guilty on Monday to seriously injuring a young girl in an accident and the judge allowed her to drive with restrictions to resume.
The judge changed his bondage during his indictment to allow him to have a special locking device installed that requires him to pass an alcohol test before his vehicle can start.
Reid, the son of Chiefs Coach Andy Reid, was charged with driving drunk and causing serious injury in April two months after crashing into two cars on an Interstate 435 driveway near Arrowhead Stadium. The collision occurred just days before the Chiefs game at the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay, Florida.
One of the vehicles he hit had stalled because of a dead battery, and the second belonged to a cousin who had come to the rescue according to charging documents. A child in one of the cars, 5-year-old Ariel Young, suffered a traumatic brain injury.
A Kansas City police officer reported that he could smell alcohol and that Reid’s eyes were bloodshot and red, according to documents.
He drove about 135 kilometers per hour shortly before the collision and had a blood alcohol level of 0.113 two hours after the accident, the police said. The legal limit is 0.08.
Reid, who underwent emergency surgery for a groin injury after the accident, was given leave of absence. The Chiefs then let his contract expire and ended his employment with the team.
The next hearing is a pre-negotiation conference on July 22nd. No negotiation date was set.
