After a week of rumors swirling Lamar Odom’s recent troubling behavior, the basketball player has been arrested on suspicion of DUI after driving too slowly on the 101 Freeway.
The arrest occurred in a rumor filled week which centered around allegations that Odom is cheating on wife Khloe Kardashian, which later developed into allegations that the basketball star had been using crack cocaine.
Early Friday morning, Odom was going about 50 mph when he was pulled over on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley. California Highway Patrol officials said he was driving in a “serpentine manner” and actually continued past three exits while authorities tried to pull him over. He showed signs of intoxication and couldn’t pass field sobriety tests, a CHP report said. He refused all chemical tests at Van Nuys jail.
A year ago, Khloe reportedly pressured Lamar into rehab in San Diego, TMZ reports, where he stayed for only three weeks but managed to clean up in time for his season with the Clippers. Kardashian Odom has reportedly kept the alleged circumstances a secret from her notoriously close family until recently.
Odom was arrested just before 4 a.m., booked around 5 a.m. and not released until around 8:30 a.m. Odom’s bail was set at $15,000, according to L.A. Sheriff’s Department records. Odom is due in court September 27 for the DUI arrest.
