The legal hits just keep on coming for Britt Reid.
The 22-year-old son of Eagles Coach Andy Reid was taken into custody by Plymouth Township Police yesterday after he failed a sobriety test in a parking lot outside a local Dick's Sporting Goods store.
Reid was taken to Mercy Suburban Hospital in Norristown for bloodwork, but law enforcement officials said the results won't be back until Monday, at the earliest - meaning that, for now, he isn't facing any charges.
Reid's latest brush with the law came just a week after he pleaded guilty to gun and simple assault charges related to a road-rage incident last Jan. 30.
He admitted in a guilty plea on Aug. 13 that he pointed a silver handgun, for which he had no license, at another motorist during a confrontation in West Conshohocken.
Reid, who also admitted to having marijuana and cocaine in his car during the road-rage incident, could face up to 14 months in jail.
Yesterday, Plymouth Township Deputy Police Chief Joseph Lawrence said police received a call at about 3:30 p.m. that Reid was possibly intoxicated outside the store on Chemical Road near Gallagher.
Police pulled Reid over before he could leave the parking lot in his pickup truck. When police arrived, Reid's truck had already struck several shopping carts, said Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor.
Reid failed a field sobriety test and was taken to the hospital shortly thereafter for blood tests, Lawrence said. Reid cooperated with police and was expected to be released last night on his own recognizance, Lawrence said.
Castor said Reid is in an unusual legal predicament.
Reid is free on bail pending sentencing in his road-rage case, which is being prosecuted by the state attorney general's office.
"If there are new charges, the attorney general will have to decide if it's serious enough to ask the judge here in Montgomery County to revoke his bail," Castor said.
Reid's lawyers, Ross Weiss and William J. Winning, could not be reached for comment.
Britt's brother, Garrett Reid, 24, pleaded guilty to charges arising from an incident on the same January day in which his 2004 Jeep Liberty rammed a Ford Taurus driven by Louise Hartmann at Germantown Pike and Arch Road, Plymouth Township.
