Governor Mike Parson’s decision to shorten a particular prison sentence is getting a lot of flak. He announced Friday that he was commuting the rest of the sentence of former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid to house arrest. Reid, the son of Chiefs coach Andy Reid, was sentenced to three years in prison two years ago after pleading guilty to driving while intoxicated and causing serious bodily injury.

Prosecutors said Reid was drunk when he was driving his Dodge truck about 84 in a 65 mile-per-hour zone on an entrance ramp near Arrowhead Stadium . A girl inside one of the cars, five-year-old Ariel Young, suffered a traumatic brain injury.
