April trial date set for ex-Chiefs assistant Britt Reid

The trial of former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid, who is facing a felony driving while intoxicated charge, is scheduled for April 18.

The date was set Thursday morning at a virtual hearing. Reid and his attorney, J.R. Hobbs, participated by videoconference.

The charges stem from a Feb. 4 incident, when Reid is alleged to have been driving drunk when he hit two cars that were stopped on the side of an entrance ramp to Interstate 435. The wreck left a 5-year-old girl with a traumatic brain injury, and injured another child.

If convicted of the Class D felony, Reid, 36, could be sentenced up to seven years in prison. He is the son of Chiefs coach Andy Reid, who hired him to coach linebackers.

Charges were filed April 12. He entered a not guilty plea.

Kansas City prosecutors say Reid had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.113 from a sample taken two hours after he barreled into a disabled vehicle on I-435. Reid was driving 83.9 miles per hour — in a posted 65 mph zone — 1.9 seconds before slamming into the vehicle, per the probable cause statement form made public earlier this year.

Reid suffered blunt force trauma to his groin in the accident, which required emergency surgery, per the filing.

He initially was placed on administrative leave by the Chiefs before the organization decided against renewing his contract.
