Lamar Odom's life continues to spiral downward. The NBA player, who is married to Khloe Kardashian, was arrested this morning in California for "driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs"
Odom was stopped in San Fernando Valley for driving too slow on the 101 Freeway--- around 50 MPH. According to police, he was driving in a "serpentine manner."
The 33-year old Queens, New York native passed three exits before responding to commands to pull over. When he exited his white Mercedes, Odom showed obvious signs of intoxication. He subsequently failed all field sobriety tests.
Odom was arrested around 4 AM and taken to a nearby station, where he was booked, but refused chemical testing. He was released three and a half hours later after posting $15,000 bail.
This latest arrest follows a recent sting of strange behavior for Odom. It was reported recently that he went missing for 72 hours and is battling a crack cocaine addiction.
The player is currently a free agent. He played for the Los Angeles Clippers last season.
He is due back in Van Nuys Municipal Court on Sept. 27th, according to the L.A. Times.
**UPDATE** September 13th.
The Los Angeles City Attorney has officially charged Lamar Odom with driving under the influence, according to the L.A. Times.
He is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 27.
Odom has hired former O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Shapiro to represent him. Since Odom refused to take a chemical test at the police station he will lose his driving privileges for a year.
Because this is Odom's first offence he will most likely get probation and have to take an alcohol education course if convicted.
