Where was Britt Reid drinking before his alleged DWI? The Chiefs and the NFL owe the public an answer

Related Topics: Chiefs

Legally drunk with what prosecutors allege was at least a .113 blood alcohol concentration and recklessly driving his Dodge Ram at 84 miles per hour, Britt Reid, at the time an assistant coach for the Super Bowl-bound Kansas City Chiefs, tried to enter Interstate 435 using the Raytown Road onramp.

It was then, just after 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 4, that he slammed his pickup into two cars parked in the highway’s breakdown lane. Two children were hurt, most horrifically Ariel Young, a 5-year-old seated in the backseat of her mom’s Chevy Traverse.
