Early Friday morning NBA player Lamar Odom was arrested under suspicion of DUI. This comes on the heels of news that Lamar Odom has been slipping into drug use.
The bust occurred in the San Fernando Valley at 3:54 AM. Lamar was popped by the California Highway Patrol and taken to a nearby station, where he was booked and is being held on $15,000 bail.
He was pulled over on the 101 Freeway for going too slow — 50 MPH. Lamar did not respond to cops, and drove 3 exits before finally coming to a stop. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ he showed obvious signs of intoxication.
Lamar failed numerous field sobriety tests.
When Lamar was booked, we’re told he refused all chemical tests.
Lamar’s booking sheet shows he is 6’10” and 235 lbs.
Lamar has been tooling around town lately … this after TMZ broke the story he had been on a crack binge.
The Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly offered Lamar Odom a roster spot if he would go to rehab. As someone familiar with recovery he’d be wise to take them up on this offer. Lamar Odom’s trade from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks seemed to spark a downward spiral for the forward though there reports that his drug use started before the trade.
