Former Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid

Former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid, Andy Reid's son, has received his prison sentence. 

Britt has been sentenced to three years in prison on Tuesday. It's one year less than the prosecution recommended.

The former Chiefs assistant coach crashed into two vehicles on the side of an interstate ramp on Feb. 4, 2020. He had a .113 alcohol concentration level at the time. 

Britt and five others were injured from the crash. That included a then five-year-old girl named Ariel, who was in a coma for two weeks as a result of her injuries. She still deals with complications from her injuries, including movement issues.

"Former #Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid was sentenced to 3 years in prison for the DWI crash that severely injured a young girl in 2021," said Ari Meirov.

Ariel's mother, Felicia Miller, was vouching for seven years behind bars for Britt Reid. The prosecution argued for four. Three is the final verdict. 

“It’s been nearly 21 months since Britt Reid hurt us,” Miller said, via Yahoo Sports. “He apologized last month for first the time … To be clear, your apology is not accepted.

“He apologized to us at the same time he apologized to ‘Chiefs Kingdom,’ ” Miller adds. “This is not a game. This is not a Chiefs' game. This is our life.”

Unfortunately, Ariel and her family will deal with this trauma for the rest of their lives.
