Additional drug charges against Garrett Reid were announced today in connection with the discovery of 89 pills in his jail cell, according to the Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor Jr..

Castor Jr. said Reid is being charged with smuggling contraband into the county jail, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and attempted delivery of a controlled substance.

Castor interviewed Reid's cellmate, who told prosecutors that he saw Reid remove the pills from his rectal area. In order to verify the cellmate's account, Castor said, detectives searched the Reid family home in Villanova last night and found prescription pills that matched the pills found in Reid's cell.

Garrett Reid,  the eldest son of Eagles coach Andy Reid, was sentenced yesterday to two to 23 months on charges arising out of a Jan. 30 accident. He had been free on bail before sentencing, but bail was revoked on two occasions: once for missing and once for flunking mandated drug tests.
