Britt Reid, the son of Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, has has his three-year prison sentence for DUI commuted by the governor of Missouri.

Reid was sentenced after he pled guilty in September 2022 to driving while intoxicated causing bodily injury.

The crash injured five others, including five-year-old Ariel Young, who was severely injured in the wreck.

Ariel’s mother, Felicia Miller, believed that Reid should have faced the maximum sentence before he took a plea deal.

That deal saw him face up to four years in prison for the crime, but he has served less than half that time.

Reid pled guilty to DUI after he crashed into a car carrying 5-year-old Ariel Young and other passengers. Four people were injured while Young was left in a coma and with brain injuries.

In a statement, Missouri governor Mike Parson said, ‘Mr. Reid has completed his alcohol abuse treatment program and has served more prison time than most individuals convicted of similar offenses.

‘Mr. Reid will be under house arrest until October 31, 2025, with strict conditions of probation, including weekly meetings with a parole officer, weekly behavioral counseling attendance, weekly meetings with a peer support sponsor, and stringent community service and employment requirements.¬†

‘A full list of the conditions of the commutation can be found in the attached letter.’

Those conditions include getting a job where he works at least 30 hours a week, installing an ignition interlock system in any vehicle he operates, random substance screenings, weekly meetings with a probation officer, attending behavioral counseling, meeting with a peer support sponsor, and completing at least 10 hours community service each week.

Reid is also not allowed to contact the victim or her family unless legally required.

According to court records, Reid’s blood alcohol level was 0.113. He was also traveling at 84mph just before the crash.

Field sobriety tests indicated Reid was impaired, with one officer noting his eyes were bloodshot and he a smell of alcohol coming from him.

Video from the incident wasn’t released until April of 2023, which showed Reid trying to use his cell phone after being taken out of his car.

Reid asked officers if the passengers in the other car were okay, seemingly unaware that Ariel Young was in a coma and suffered traumatic brain injuries.

Young’s mother said she didn’t wake up for two weeks after the crash and had to re-learn how to walk, talk, and eat.¬†

After the accident, Reid was fired from his position as linebacker coach on the team and it was eventually revealed he had been consuming alcohol at the team’s facility before the wreck.
