On Monday, a judge ruled that former Kansas City Chiefs Assistant Coach Britt Reed will be allowed to drive while he awaits trial. KRPS’s Fred Fletcher-Fierro has more.
In early February of this year, just three days before the Chiefs were set to play the Tampa Bay Bucs in Super Bowl 55 son of Kansas City Head Coach Andy Reid hit two cars as he was getting on Interstate 435 near Arrowhead Stadium. At a bond hearing on Monday, Jackson County Judge Jessica Agnelly said the no driving condition was mistakenly added.
However, Reid will have to drive with a device that tests his blood alcohol level before starting his car. Reid struck two cars and injured two children, one of them a 5-year old suffered a traumatic brain injury. Reid was charged over two months later with driving while intoxicated. According to police he was driving 83 miles per hour and had a blood alcohol level of 0.113 when tested, two hours after the crash. The legal limit in Missouri is .08. The Chiefs put him on administrative leave following the crash and chose not to renew his contract.
