Son of Eagles coach faced gun and drug charges

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) -- Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid's son pleaded guilty Monday to gun and drug charges stemming from a road-rage dispute.

Britt Reid, 22, pleaded guilty to a string of pending charges -- including carrying a firearm without a license, a felony -- as his trial was to start, a Montgomery County court official said.

Prosecutors will seek six to 14 months of jail time, while the defense will seek probation. A sentencing date has not been set.

Britt Reid, 22, brandished a handgun at another motorist in suburban Philadelphia on Jan. 30, the same day his brother was arrested for a drug-related traffic crash.

Defense lawyer William Winning said afterward his client admitted what he did and was remorseful.

Besides the firearms charge, Reid also pleaded guilty to simple assault, possession of an instrument of crime and drug possession. Misdemeanor charges of making terroristic threats, making a false statement to law enforcement and possessing drug paraphernalia were dropped.
