Britt Reid jailed

Britt Reid, the son of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid, was jailed Friday for violating his bail after he was stopped Thursday on suspicion of driving while impaired.

Police allegedly found 33 pills on the 22-year-old Reid, including the prescription painkiller hydrocodone,

Reid was free while awaiting sentencing for a January road-rage incident in which police say he brandished a gun at another driver. As a condition of bail when Reid pleaded guilty to weapons and drug charges, Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O’Neill ordered him to remain drug-free and limit his driving to his community college classes.

The angry judge revoked the bail after Reid's latest incident.

Andy Reid refused to discuss the matter at a press conference in the NovaCare Complex earlier in the day. "If you can stay away from the questions on my family, I'd appreciate it. This is about football and our football team," the coach said.

Britt Reid faces a possible six-to-14 month jail sentence for the original charges.
