Former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid, the son of head coach Andy Reid, was involved in a brutal car crash earlier this year.
The accident occurred just a few days before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Chiefs faced off in the Super Bowl, and resulted in significant injuries to a 5-year-old.
Britt and the Chiefs parted ways almost immediately, but there were few developments on the situation past that.
This week, something finally happened.
On Monday the Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office announced that Britt was charged with a DWI, a class D felony that carries a potential prison sentence of one to seven years.
According to TMZ, investigators believe Britt was going 83.9 MPH in a 65 MPH zone just seconds before the collision.
On Tuesday, in a post on their donation page, the 5-year-old victim’s family revealed that the child was unable to eat, walk or talk properly after the crash.
“Ariel is at home recovering, we hope that her being in a familiar place will help her remember things,” the update read.
“She is doing physical therapy but as of right now she still cannot walk, talk or eat like a normal 5 year old. Thank you everyone for your continued support.”

According to officials, Britt had .113 BAC when it was measured approximately 2 hours after the crash.
The prospect of Britt heading to prison appears to be becoming increasingly likely by the day, but it remains to be seen how this situation ultimately unfolds.
