Judge crit­i­cal Ea­gles coach’s home

The Covington News - - SPORTS -

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.
