The day after Andy Reid’s sons Garrett and Britt (above) were both sent to jail — on a variety of charges that, taken together, make them easily the most gangsta Mormons in history — the Reids got more bad news: a Pennsylvania family court judge is all dissing them in the paper and whatnot! Okay, it doesn’t compare to having two outrageously lawless kids tearing apart your home, but the AP article below — the link is to the Baltimore Sun and comes via Brendan Flynn — does do a good job of recapping just how wild this pair of wild boyz were. I know Andy spends a lot of time breaking down game tape but…hollow point bullets? No one noticed the triple-beam scale?
“There isn’t any structure there that this court can depend upon,” Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill said before sentencing Reid’s son Britt to up to 23 months in jail plus probation.
“I’m saying this is a family in crisis,” O’Neill said.
Earlier yesterday, O’Neill sentenced Garrett Reid, a drug addict and dealer who said he got a thrill out of selling drugs in “the ‘hood,” to up to 23 months in jail for smashing into another motorist’s car while high on heroin.
O’Neill said searches of the Reid family’s house and vehicles found a long list of drugs, guns and ammunition.
Although police found only weapons and ammunition – and not drugs – at the house, O’Neill apparently based his remarks on Britt Reid’s statement that he once mistakenly grabbed a Vicodin tablet instead of health supplements out of a pill drawer at the home.
He said that both boys had been overmedicated much of their lives and that Britt got hooked on painkillers when he suffered a football injury in high school. “It sounds more or less like a drug emporium there with the drugs all over the house, and you’re an addict,” O’Neill told Britt Reid.
Police found a shotgun and hollow-point bullets along with cocaine, marijuana and OxyContin, a painkiller, in the vehicle Britt Reid was driving during a Jan. 30 road-rage encounter, and later found a handgun at the house that they believe he had brandished at the other driver.
They found vials of heroin and steroids, more than 200 pills and a drug scale in Garrett Reid’s car the same day, when he injured another motorist.
