Lamar Odom Arrested On Suspicion Of DUI
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — NBA basketball star Lamar Odom was arrested early Friday morning for misdemeanor driving under the influence.
The former Los Angeles Laker and Clipper was arrested by the California Highway Patrol at 3:54 a.m., according to jail records.
“One of our officers observed a white Mercedes SUV driving eastbound on the 101, approaching Sepulveda. The vehicle was weaving in the lanes, driving at approximately 50 miles per hour,” Officer Ming Hsu told KNX 1070.
Officers pulled Odom over around 3:25 a.m. after he exited the freeway at Coldwater Canyon Boulevard. He was arrested after he showed “objective signs or symptoms of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests as explained,” Hsu said.
Officials believe the 33-year-old was driving under the influence of alcohol.
The white Mercedes G-Wagon, which is registered to Odom’s wife, Khloe Kardashian Odom, was towed to a nearby yard.
