Lamar Odom Arrested for DUI; Refuses to Take Sobriety Test

NBA player Lamar Odom was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence after he was spotted driving too slow ( 50 MPH) on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley, the California Highway Patrol said.

Odom, 33, was driving a Mercedes SUV when he was stopped  at 3:25 a.m. and “showed objective signs of intoxications,” according to CHiPs. After he was unable to perform a field sobriety test, he was arrested at 3:54 a.m. and taken to Van Nuys Jail, where he was booked. There, he refused all chemical tests. Bail was set at $15,000.

The former Laker was even slower to respond to cops’ requests to pull over — driving three exits before coming to a stop.

Lamar’s court date is set for Sept. 27.

The arrest comes after news that the former LA Clippers star has allegedly been strugging with drug addiction. TMZ previously reported that he went missing for 72 hours and friends and family are concerned about him. The substance abuse has reportedly taken a toll on his marriage to Khloe Kardashian. Rumors are that he is addicted to crack.

Many have been wondering why Odom, who is now a free agent,  did not return this season to play with the Clippers. Sources say he wanted to play this season, and the Clippers had some interest in bringing him back. However, the Clippers signed veteran forward Antawn Jamison on Wednesday.
