Former Chiefs coach Britt Reid’s trial date set for 2022 in DWI crash case

News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The trial date for former Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid, who is charged with drunk driving in the crash that seriously injured a 5-year-old girl, has been set.

Reid, son of Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, will appear before a jury starting April 18, 2022. During a conference Thursday morning, Judge Charles McKenzie said the jury will be selected from a pool of at least 70 potential jurors.

In July, Reid’s attorney, J.R. Hobbs, said there was still an additional investigation to be completed, including the possibility of expert witnesses in the case.

Reid crashed into two vehicles near Arrowhead Stadium. When police arrived, his blood alcohol content was .113, according to court documents. Reid told police he had two or three drinks the night of the crash and had a prescription for Adderall.

Police said Reid was driving 82 mph in a 65 mph zone leading up to the crash. One of the vehicles was assisting another that had run out of fuel.

Ariel Young, the 5-year-old seriously injured, suffered a traumatic brain injury and is still recovering. She finally returned home in April after roughly two months in the hospital. A GoFundMe started for the girl raised over $500,000 for medical expenses.

Reid was later let go from the Chiefs organization.
