The NFL is reviewing whether Chiefs outside linebackers coach Britt Reid violated the league’s personal conduct policy when he hit a car that had pulled over on the highway, seriously injuring a 5-year-old girl.

A legal investigation is ongoing after the crash, and Reid reportedly admitted to police that he had been drinking. The Chiefs placed Reid on administrative leave, and the NFL has confirmed Reid could face league discipline as well.

“Our primary concern is for the young girl, her family, and the others who were injured,” the league’s statement said. “The matter will be reviewed under the NFL’s personal conduct policy. We will continue to monitor developments and when law enforcement has completed its review we will address this matter and take any appropriate action.”

The son of head coach Andy Reid, Britt Reid has a previous drunk driving conviction on his record. Police said that a report on the crash will be issued within the next 30 to 60 days.

  1. DWI crash that injures a 5 year old in the other car = “The matter will be reviewed under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.” after several days.

    Players smoke weed = suspension.

    OK, I see your priorities.

  2. So why haven’t the Cheifs offered to cover all the medical expenses? They kept dude on staff? We will never hear about the tapes but I am sure he was drinking at the office. Adderall prescription should be looked into as well. I am betting the team doc wrote the ‘script.

  3. He smashed into 2 vehicles,one which contained two little girls,while under the influence of alcohol and Adderall.One of those little girls is fighting for her life. I don’t think that there is ANY question that he violated the personal conduct policy.

  4. Did they not test his blood alcohol level? Seems odd, guy admitted he had been drinking.

    The police took 4 vials of blood. Even in the unlikely case it comes back low, a normal person would be convicted based on the officers testimony. Bloodshot eyes, alcohol on his breath, did poorly on the sobriety test, admitted to “1-2” beers and Adderall.
