Missouri Governor Mike Parson has changed the punishment for former Kansas City Chiefs Assistant Coach Britt Reid, who is the son of head coach Andy Reid. Britt admitted to driving under the influence in a 2021 accident that seriously hurt a five-year-old, as reported by CNN. Initially, he was sentenced to three years in jail.

According to a statement from Parson’s office, “Mr. Reid has finished his program for dealing with alcohol issues and has spent more time in prison than most people found guilty of similar crimes. Mr. Reid will be on house arrest until October 31, 2025, with strict probation conditions. These include weekly meetings with a parole officer, attending behavioral counseling every week, meeting with a peer support sponsor every week, and fulfilling demanding community service and job requirements.”

The Super Bowl champions had initially placed Britt on leave in 2021 and did not renew his contract the following year.

Reid’s lawyer, J.R. Hobbs, chose not to comment when contacted by CNN.

In February, Governor Parson granted 36 pardons and approved three changes to sentences, according to a press release from his office.
