Britt Reid graduates from drug program

Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid's 24-year-old son, Britt Reid, has graduated from a drug court program. Reid enrolled in the program early last year after a series of run-ins with the law.

He was arrested in January 2007 in West Conshohocken on drug and weapons charges after he flashed a gun at another driver in a road-rage incident. His older brother, Garrett, is serving a prison sentence related to drug addiction.

Britt Reid completed a 15-month treatment program at the Montgomery County Drug Court, but District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said battling drug addiction is a lifelong process.

Reid's parents, Andy and Tammy Reid, were in the courtroom for the graduation. Andy Reid called it a "big step" for his son.
