Britt Reid to plead guilty in DWI crash that injured young girl

Former Kansas City Chiefs Assistant Coach Britt Reid will plead guilty to a felony DWI charge stemming from his 2021 crash that severely injured a young girl, his lawyer announced Tuesday.

According to multiple reports, court records state Reid will plead guilty on Sept. 12 and faces up to seven years in prison.

“Mr. Reid is sorry for his actions and hopes that his plea brings some sense of justice to all those he affected,” Reid’s lawyer JR Hobbs said in a statement.

Reid, 37, was accused of driving while intoxicated after his Ram pickup truck crashed into two vehicles near Arrowhead Stadium on Feb. 4, 2021. The accident left 5-year-old Ariel Young with a traumatic brain injury and caused non-life-threatening injuries to a 4-year-old. In November 2021, Young’s family announced they had reached a care plan for her.

“Mr. Reid sincerely apologizes to AY and her family, and to his own family,” Hobbs said. “He also extends his deep apologies to the Hunt family, the Chiefs organization and Chiefs Kingdom.”

Court documents say Reid, the son of Chiefs Coach Andy Reid, measured a 0.113 blood alcohol level and was driving 83 miles per hour 1.9 seconds before the crash.

Reid, who originally pleaded not guilty back in April, was set to see his criminal trial begin on Sept. 26 but likely will avoid that now. The crash happened three days before the Chiefs lost to the Buccaneers in the Super Bowl. Reid was a Coach with the Chiefs from 2013-2020 and his contract was not renewed after the 2020 season.
