( – Felicia Miller, whose daughter was badly injured in a 2021 drunk driving crash involving former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid, slammed Missouri Gov. Mike Parson over his commutation of the sentence that Reid would have faced. 

During an interview with ESPN that was published on Monday, March 11, Miller argued that had the roles been reversed, then she was sure that the outcome of this case would have been significantly different. She made it clear that she was “p—-d” after learning what happened to Reid’s sentence.

She told ESPN that this incident revolved around Reid, who was the assistant coach for the Kansas City Chiefs in Kansas City. She argued that if it had been her, as a regular citizen, who had been driving drunk and ended up hitting Reid’s car with his child inside, her life “would’ve been over.” 

On Feb. 4, 2021, Ariel Young suffered from traumatic brain injury. Prosecutors stated that head coach Andy Reid’s son, Britt Reid, was driving intoxicated going close to 20 mph over the speed limit when he ended up crashing his truck into two cars. 

After the crash, Ariel spent 11 days in a coma and several months in the hospital. However, Parson commuted Reid’s three-year sentence and converted it to house arrest. 

Miller argued that when they went to court, they were told they would get justice, but that didn’t happen because he only spent a year and three months behind bars. Tom Porto, the family’s attorney, argued that the governor’s decision had been prompted by him being a Chief’s fan.
