Britt Reid will be in a Montgomery County courtroom today to hear if he has been accepted to a drug treatment program. The second son of Eagles coach Andy Reid, Britt Reid, 22, pleaded guilty on Jan. 18 to driving under the influence of a controlled substance last August. Sentencing was delayed when Montgomery County Court Judge Steven T. O'Neill questioned whether Reid was sincere about his interest in the county's drug treatment court. Yesterday, Senior Deputy Attorney General E. Marc Costanzo said he received an order for a sentencing and parole/drug court hearing set for 1:30 p.m. today.

Britt Reid graduated last night. Eagles coach Andy Reid's 24-year-old son, who made headlines for his drug addiction and run-ins with the law, completed a 15-month treatment program at the Montgomery County Drug Court. "You are moving on clean and sober," Judge Steven T. O'Neill told a smiling and relaxed Britt Reid during a ceremony at the Norristown courthouse for nine drug court graduates. Andy Reid called the graduation a "big step" for his son. "I am proud of Britt," he said.

Britt Reid, the son of Eagles coach Andy Reid, failed to reach a plea agreement yesterday on charges of driving under the influence and drug and traffic offenses. It means Britt Reid will likely go to trial on the charges next month, which stem from an incident in August. He is already in jail on charges stemming from a road-rage incident in January. "I highly doubt we can come to any resolution," Senior Deputy Attorney General E. Marc Costanzo said after conferring with Reid's lawyers for the better part of five hours yesterday in a Norristown courtroom.

Like a vexed parent, Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Steven T. O'Neill said he didn't know quite what to do with Britt Reid. The 22-year-old son of Eagles Coach Andy Reid was back in front of O'Neill yesterday to answer for a doped-up shopping trip to Dick's Sporting Goods, in Plymouth Meeting, last August. In that incident, Britt Reid stumbled around the store and then rammed his truck into a shopping cart. Police uncovered more than 230 pills, including Valium, in his truck.

Britt Reid, son of Eagles coach Andy Reid, pleaded guilty yesterday to driving under the influence of a controlled substance, but the judge indicated Reid would not be given extra time behind bars. Reid already is in Montgomery County Jail for a road-rage incident a year ago, when he pulled a gun on another motorist. Yesterday's case stemmed from an incident in a Plymouth Township parking lot last summer, when Reid drove his vehicle into a shopping cart. Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O'Neill also questioned Reid's sincerity about wanting to be admitted into the county's drug-treatment program after a prosecutor said the prosecution had evidence to the contrary.

Britt Reid was standing at the scene of his brother Garrett's traffic accident in Plymouth Township last week and told police he had waved a silver flashlight at a motorist he had argued with earlier, authorities said yesterday. Police investigating the road-rage incident involving Britt Reid said that was among several times he changed his answer when asked that day whether he instead waved a brushed stainless-steel handgun at the other motorist. Yesterday, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office filed a litany of gun and drug charges against the 21-year-old son of Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid stemming from the incident in West Conshohocken on Jan. 30. Hours later, Britt Reid arrived in a police car at a King of Prussia court building to face arraignment.

Like tinkering under the hood of a an old car or baiting a fish hook, football is one of life's threads that bind fathers and sons. The tradition renews itself at this time every year. Older men connect with their offspring against a backdrop of colorful autumn leaves. Or on a makeshift gridiron in the backyard. Or squeezed together in stadium bleachers. Or even in the den, in front of a television set on Sunday afternoons. For Eagles coach Andy Reid and his son Britt, a senior at Harriton High in Bryn Mawr, Montgomery County, the experience has not been much different.

A very businesslike Britt Reid arrived in court from jail yesterday to face both new criminal charges and a gauntlet of news-media types. Reid was charged with misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Despite his no-nonsense attitude inside the courtroom, he turned more glib outside. When asked by reporters as he left the building if he had any comment, he responded with a half-smile: "Hi Mom and Dad. " His courtroom behavior also was a stark contrast to the young man described by witnesses during an incident last week outside a sporting goods store in Plymouth Township.

Police in two suburban municipalities and the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office are continuing investigations into separate traffic incidents involving two of Eagles coach Andy Reid's sons. The first incident, on Tuesday morning, involved Britt Reid, a second man, and a gun. Law enforcement officials would not say who possessed the weapon. NBC10, quoting a law enforcement source, reported last night that investigators found a gun in Britt Reid's car, and a platinum handgun during a search of the Reid home Tuesday night in Villanova.

From Eagletarian.com, the Daily News' Eagles blog: It figured Andy Reid would take some of his assistants with him to Kansas City - it was no shock when Eagles quarterbacks coach Doug Pederson became the Chiefs' offensive coordinator Friday - but the staff list released by the Chiefs did contain some surprises. Reid's son Britt, a graduate assistant at Temple, is going to the Chiefs as a quality control coach. Britt is most known by Eagles fans for being arrested, the same day in 2007 as his older brother Garrett, after separate traffic incidents that involved drug charges.

BUSINESSMAN Tom Knox , who placed second in the 2007 mayoral race, has been telling friends he intends to run for governor in 2014. On Friday night, Knox was spotted dining with Mayor Nutter and Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey at the Union League. We asked Knox about the nature of their conversation. "When running for political office, it's always good to build constituencies," he wrote by email. OK, so does that mean you're running for governor, we asked. "It is currently my intention to run, but I am not announcing at this time," Knox said.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - It was a father-to-father conversation and not a coach-to-reporter one. The public Andy Reid is much different from the private one, and when you cover the Eagles for a living you occasionally get a glimpse of the coach off the field. In March, the NFL owners meetings were held in West Palm Beach, Fla., and I attended the three-day event on assignment. On the second day, the league hosts an off-the-record party that coaches, front-office personnel, and reporters alike are invited to attend.

Eagles head coach Andy Reid's son Britt was pulled over for several traffic violations Thursday, after years without a run-in with the law. State Police said that Reid, 26, was given traffic citations for speeding, careless driving and tire-equipment violations while driving on a state roadway in Lower Merion Township. A State Police spokeswoman did not know the exact location or time of Reid's traffic stop. Reid can either deal with the citations by paying the appropriate fines or by taking them before a magisterial district judge, the spokeswoman said.

Michel Gondry, the imaginative maker of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind , The Science of Sleep , and Be Kind Rewind , makes whimsical, rueful movies about losers who find themselves in their fantasies. Hiring this sensitive fantasist to make the superhero saga The Green Hornet is like hiring satirist John Waters to make Rambo . Hard to think of a more mystifying mismatch of filmmaker and material. Seth Rogen cowrote and costars in the movie that aims for irreverence and settles for irrelevance.

IF YOU FIND the idea of Seth Rogen as a crime-fighting superhero to be ridiculous, you have company - so does "Green Hornet" director Michel Gondry. Gondry's completely facetious action romp trades in Rogen's comic persona of sloth, arrested development and underachievement - Rogen's been an incompetent stockroom worker ("40-Year-Old Virgin"), web designer ("Knocked Up"), pornographer ("Zack and Miri Make a Porno"), police officer ("Superbad") and security officer ("Observe and Report")

It was a proud moment for Eagles coach Andy Reid this summer when his son "graduated" from drug-court supervision. But a new study makes a valid argument that guys like Britt Reid shouldn't be referred to that type of prison-alternative program. Britt Reid, 24, spent 15 months under supervision of the Montgomery County Drug Court. In 2007, he was arrested after flashing a gun at another motorist. Small amounts of cocaine and marijuana were found in his truck. While free on bail, he failed a sobriety test and Vicodin was found in his car. The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers conducted the two-year study that says drug courts too often suck up a community's drug-treatment funds to use on nonviolent criminals like Britt Reid, who may have their own resources to deal with their addictions.
