Judge critical Eagles coach’s home
NORRISTOWN, Pa. — A judge who sentenced Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid’s sons on Thursday likened the coach’s home to “a drug emporium” and questioned whether his adult sons should live there.
“There isn’t any structure there that this court can depend upon,” Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill said before sentencing Britt Reid to up to 23 months in jail plus probation.
“I’m saying this is a family in crisis,” O’Neill said.
Earlier Thursday, O’Neill sentenced Garrett Reid, a drug addict and dealer who said he got a thrill out of selling drugs in “the ‘hood,” to up to 23 months in jail for smashing into another motorist’s car while high on heroin.
O’Neill said searches of the Reid home found illegal and prescription drugs throughout the house. He said both boys had been overmedicated throughout much of their lives.
“It sounds more or less like a drug emporium there, and you are an addict,” O’Neill told Britt Reid.
Andy Reid and his wife, Tammy, were in court but declined to comment.
“Andy and Tammy are supportive of their son. That has been their position since this all began. He will not comment on it,” defense attorney Ross Weiss said before the judge’s comments.
Britt said everything he did, he did without his parents’ knowledge, but O’Neill questioned that.
