Lamar Odom Charged With DUI
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — NBA star Lamar Odom was charged with one count of driving under the influence Monday, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office said.
The former Los Angeles Laker and Clipper was arrested by the California Highway Patrol in the early morning hours of Aug. 30 after California Highway Patrol officers noticed him driving slowly and weaving in lanes.
California Highway Patrol 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.
During booking, Odom refused all chemical tests and, as a result, will have his driver’s license suspended under state law.
