Two of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid's sons are under investigation —one for suspicion of pointing a gun at a motorist, the other for a car accident just hours later, after which police said he admitted using heroin.
Britt Reid was questioned by police after a man matching his description in a sport-utility vehicle registered to Andy Reid and his wife brandished a weapon at another driver during an argument Tuesday morning, authorities said.
Authorities served a search warrant later Tuesday at the home the 21-year-old shares with his parents in suburban Philadelphia. Police said they seized a shotgun and a handgun, along with containers of white powder or residue from the vehicle.
No charges have been filed, but police gave the following account of the incident:
A man matching Britt Reid's description got out of a sport-utility vehicle and yelled at another motorist, then returned to his SUV and pulled out a handgun. He then pointed the gun directly at the other driver, smiled and took off, but the other motorist took down his license plate number.
From the vehicle, police recovered a shotgun, ammunition, a container holding eight clear baggies with white residue, a container with white powder, four small white pills, and a pharmacy bottle holding a green leafy substance, according to a list obtained by The Associated Press.
A pistol and ammunition were also seized from the house.
Andy Reid was on vacation and not at home at the time of the search. He returned home Wednesday.
On the same day as the alleged road-rage incident, Britt Reid's older brother, Garrett, was found with drug paraphernalia after his sport-utility vehicle collided with another vehicle in nearby Plymouth Township, police said.
According to a police affidavit obtained by WPVI-TV, a Plymouth Township police officer observed a triple beam scale and the butt of a handgun in the SUV Garrett Reid had been driving.
Officers detained Garrett Reid and recovered two used hypodermic needles and a knife. One officer said Reid was unable to follow simple directions or understand what was told to him.
In a statement to police, the 23-year-old Garrett Reid said he had used heroin earlier in the day, admitted he was speeding at the time of the accident and said he did not know what color the traffic light was when he went through the intersection, according to the affidavit.
Police requested a search warrant for the SUV, but it was not immediately clear if investigators had executed the warrant.
Man, if that isn't an embarrassment. :yesnod: Not 1 son but both kids on the same day

It sucks to see good people in the NFL have kids that are downright disrespectful and loves to tarnish the reputation of their names. I agree with you, Capt. This is uncalled for.

Reid's decision comes less than two weeks after two of his sons got into separate legal trouble on the same day.

Garrett Reid, 23, tested positive for heroin after he caused a traffic accident on Jan. 30, police have said. No charges have been filed, but state prosecutors are looking at the case. Police have said he could be charged with driving under the influence of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor.

Britt Reid, 21, was arraigned on drug and weapons charges stemming from an alleged road rage incident the same day. He allegedly pointed a handgun at another driver following a dispute and faces a felony charge of carrying a firearm without a license as well as misdemeanor charges of lying to authorities, simple assault, making terroristic threats and possession of a controlled substance.

Eagles president Joe Banner will hold a news conference Monday afternoon to discuss the Reid's leave.

I feel bad for Andy Reid; he's always been a pretty good guy so this has got to be difficult for him.
