KANSAS CITY — Law enforcement officials in the American Heartland are investigating after Kansas City Chiefs linebackers coach Britt Reid instigated a brutal 3-vehicle crash Thursday night that left a 5-year-old girl hospitalized with brain damage. The accident transpired around 9 p.m. near Arrowhead Stadium. Britt, son of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, told police he guzzled liquor and Adderall (a prescription medication) prior to getting behind the steering wheel. Not to mention his eyes were bloodshot and his malodor reeked of booze. Britt, 35, failed his field sobriety tests — prompting investigators to take four vials of blood to examine his blood alcohol concentration (BAC).

Police said Britt’s pickup truck slammed into a pair of cars that were pulled over on the side of an entrance ramp to I-435. A Chevy Impala ran out of gas. 5-year-old Ariel Young is comatose after sustaining life-threatening injuries. Her 4-year-old cousin was in the same car but suffered minor bumps and bruises. Britt underwent surgery but came away basically unscathed.

The Chiefs released the following statement: “The organization has been made aware of a multi-vehicle accident involving Outside Linebackers Coach, Britt Reid. We are in the process of gathering information, and we will have no further comment at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved.”

Sadly, running afoul of the law is nothin’ new to the Reid family.

If you recall, Britt was jailed in 2007 after he pointed a gun at a man during a road rage incident. He also crashed his truck in a parking lot while driving under the influence. Britt’s big brother, Garrett, served roughly 2 years in the slammer plus probation for causing an auto crash in 2007 while high on narcotics.

Garrett died from a heroin overdose in 2012 as a member of Andy’s coaching staff in Philadelphia.

Rumor has it he committed suicide.

Anyway, does Britt deserve a lengthy stay behind bars?

Is it time to proscribe nepotism in the NFL?

    Britt’s probably at his mansion chilling with some 💊💊💊s and 🍺 🍺 🍺s

  3. Noooooobbbbooooddddyyyyyy ccaaaaaares

  4. TheBlackSuper Saiyan

    @nature: Wtf you mean nobody cares a child is fighting for her life,the media doesn’t care

  5. This’s a mess is good to have family in the business but they can be your own downfall he was a huge distraction just days before Super Bowl 55

  6. It affected Ried and the team immensely.

  7. @Vegas stoker: B. Reid is not affected by this!! He’s gotten away with this so many times, he feels as tho this time won’t be any different

  8. After looking through th comments I noticed two features of addictive behavior in many users that hasn’t been mentioned to the extent it should be. Addicts try to behave in a manner of normalcy as much as they possibly can. The fear of being “found out” is what weighs so heavy in their mind they make the irrational decision to drive instead of call for a ride. The ride draws attention which leads to shame and possible abandonment by others. This shouldn’t be underestimated. It is real. I’m not being an apologist here I just know their logic is so twisted and misguided they think in some way they are doing the normal thing. The second reason is, so much more than the average person, they have already done it with minimal risk or exposure. Every successful drunk behind the wheel experience creates an illusion of less risk because “nothing happened last time”. Even if something did happen, the solution is to be “careful and more discreet” especially if you are no longer defined by that event. I’ve lost a brother and a nephew to addiction. This tears through me and my family is so thankful neither of them ultimately harmed anyone while behind the wheel. The Reid family is not that fortunate. I’m praying for both families, but it is awful that this young girl must suffer this misery. Sorry for being so long, as a KC native this strikes close in so many ways….

  9. Pray for the victims of this idiot.

  10. No perspective here. Football is a game/business. That girl is fighting for her life.

  11. Not gonna do half the time Mike Vick did for fighting some f——ing dogs…but he has the complexion for protection lmao media not even speaking about the Lil black girl he injured

  12. I can’t believe how many excuses people try to make for the chiefs’ super bowl loss. They got exposed as the trash team they are. The refs finally called a fair game, exposing that defense as the dirty players they are.

  13. BR has been “fired”.

    And so don’t put yourself in Any Reid’s shoes. The Reid’s are a dysfunctional family. They can’t cover up forever their familial mess. Mess cost KCC the Super Bowl and those kids their safety and Andy Reid’s professional reputation.

  14. Take all the chiefs draft picks, fine them $10m. And give the money to the family

  15. cryptobradley200

    Sounds like andy did a FU job raising his family

  16. Why was he even a coach why even have him around if if he’s this kind of person I mean like why have him around on the coaching staff if he’s going to drink and drive if he did it now he’s done it before

  17. Sad…especially for the child fighting for her life. Andy has done everything to help his son, but this is his son’s second DUI…just awful.

  18. Patricia Vacanti

    Feel sorry for the little girl in the hospital who cares about the Reids

  19. Brian Hamilton

    @Patricia Vacanti: Who cares about you you stupid Bitch

  20. Britt Reid has a record of DUIs, Tyreek Hill beats his kids for crying out loud. Nothing new here. Just standard Chiefs behavior.

  21. Brown Eyes Black Dragon

    I hope they take everything he has. Please Lord let that little girl pull through. Let her be able to live her life healthy and strong 🙏

  22. He’ll probably get slapped on the wrist and he’ll b out drunk driving again , I have no respect or feelings for anyone that drives drunk , piece of shit out putting innocent people’s lives in danger

  23. Fuck the Reids

  24. Flawed2Perfection - YAH'sChild

    It’s not his first drunk driving incident.
    Are we supposed to feel sorry for him and his dad? I don’t. A little girl is fighting for her life and he left her there to die!
    Brett nor his family reached out to pay the hospital bills of this little girl and so she has a gofundme page. Pitiful!

  25. I hate racist ass amerikkka 🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾

  26. I have a 2-year-old daughter. You don’t want to know the thoughts going through my mind and the outrage in my heart to anyone responsible for harming an innocent little girl. Anything short of a public statement of sincere remorse, guilt, shame and full apology and every effort in his power to compensate for this atrocious misbehavior will not be enough. Ruining her entire life because you want to drink and drive? Selfish POSs like this need to be held accountable. If Ariel was you or your child, you tell me if you’d want any less? Just forgive? Hell no… Then let me ram my truck into you and cause severe brain damage and then see if you would act cool about it. My dad always said one person’s freedom ends were another’s begins, otherwise there’s chaos. If all of us held ourselves responsible and didn’t ever allow irresponsible behaviors to get so out of hand, all of this would be prevented.It’s preventable drinking and driving is a choice that Britt didn’t have to make but he did and now he should live with the consequences of that because she doesn’t get to make the same choices for herself because of him. Now we’re here… should her life be a consequence or a learning experience for him which he likely won’t? It should be plastered all over the news that he is sick to his stomach about what he’s done and every action thereafter needs to be in alignment with severe repercussions for it. Anything short of that shows a man and a society who lacks principles and is full of cowardice and is pathetic because you’re just too selfish to consider someone else’s life and if you can’t get that you should switch places with that little girl. If Britt could exchange places with her rn for one moment, he would have made a different decision but he didn’t… now the least he can do is try to make up for it.

  27. Oh, that’s WHITE PRIVILEGE ALRIGHT! ABSOLUTELY. WHITE DADDY – TAKING CARE OF WHITE SONNY BOY. DID YOU SEE HIS CONVICTION RECORD. DRUGS, DUI, PRISON!

    There’s no way a Black guy would get such breaks, and to get an assistant coaching job on NFL Team. Go stuck!

    A Black Coach with a CIA, FBI, DEA, HIGH LEVEL FEDERAL SECURITY CLEARANCE would not get the breaks this LOSER son got. Again, white PRIVILEGE!

  28. @Patricia Vacanti: Britt Reid and Britt Reid alone is responsible for this terrible accident. The Chief’s organization and by extension Andy Reid are completely and 100% innocent. Yes,the Hunt family are Billionaires.Yes,Andy Reid is a millionaire. But they weren’t behind the wheel of the vehicle. From all that I’ve gathered over the decades of watching and loving NFL football. Andy Reid is a stand up guy. And a person of integrity. He’s the only coach in the league to gave Michael Vick a second chance out of prison. Could Andy’s & the Hunt families money make this go away? Probably. But I think Andy has drawn a line. This is his sons mess to clean up. And I have no doubt in my mind that this played a huge roll in how the Chiefs got blown off the field in the Super Bowl. In short,Andy Reid is a stand up individual and he isn’t in anyway responsible for this.

  29. Britt Reid should be convicted and sued accordingly, but his employer should not be vilified or guilted into helping this family.

    I worked third shift at FedEx and fell asleep at a stop light in college. I rolled into the car in front of me and dented the bumper/fender. Should fedex be liable for my actions? No, it was solely my responsibility.

    If the chiefs decide to help this girl as an act of kindness, that’s their decision to make. We gotta stop spending other people’s money.

  30. honky privilege

  31. This piece of shit human just plead NOT Guilty! Just shows you his mindset. Lock this multiple defender up for life before he kills someone!! I seek justice. Discusting human Brett, hope you get justice!

  32. Turns out his blood alcohol level was .113 two hours after the accident meaning he was absolutely blind drunk when he was driving not to mention also being on prescription speed. He should do some serious time but it’s unlikely because…money.

  33. Meredith Parker

    This idiot fool of a parent couldn’t manage to fill her gas tank, and then left her kids in a car sitting in the passing lane of a highway without any hazard lights on after she ran out of gas. She has some real serious blame in what happened.

  34. Thats his second time drinking and driving he walked out of it and now this little girl and her family’s life will be changed forever. He deserves the maximum punishment in this case.
    And not even bothering to ask about her or her family after what he did. Disgusting

  35. lisawatson1982

    She deserves justice he should go to prison as this is not his first time DUI

  36. This is what will continue to happen as long as drunk or otherwise impaired drivers keep getting a pass. In almost every case there are multiple infractions and the courts just keep letting them go. ” It’s a disease…a sickness”. Always the excuse used to give violators a slap on the wrist. When anyone decides to get high and or drunk and climb behind the wheel…they choose to do so. Stop the coddling.

  37. Folks it’s simple:
    If your want to drink, then don’t drive.
    If you have to drive, then don’t drink.

  38. Geisala Gordon

    Praying for Ariel, and her family. Also for Britt/Brett, because this should get him to see he made the wrong decision which caused much pain and turmoil to another family.

  39. Morgan Earlene

    Rich people problems it’s sad

  40. I would kick someone’s ass so bad if they did anything like that to anyone in my family. I wouldn’t wait for any charges, I’d kill him myself

  41. This is heartbreaking just shows if you have money you can do what you want to whoever you want as long as they don’t have as much money as you then they will find reasons to justify it

  42. He needs to pay and go to jail
    SMH 🤦‍♀️

    Praying got the babygirl and mom and dad .. my hearts ho out to you all .. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼😥😥😥😇😇👼👼👼👼👼👼

  43. It’s called white privilege

  44. He is going to go free. They will blame it on the black pills and brown liquor he consumed.

  45. F%***++ scum bag
