Former Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Lamar Odom was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence in the early morning hours of Friday.
According to the California Highway Patrol Odom was stopped about 4 a.m. Friday after a CHP officer saw his white Mercedes-Benz traveling erratically down a stretch of the San Fernando Valley freeway.
The athlete was then taken into custody after failing a field sobriety test.
Thirty-three-year-old Odom was then jailed on $15,000 bail. Odom who once played basketball for both the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, has been the subject of public scrutiny with his marriage reportedly in shambles to reality television star Khole Kardashian. He became a free agent at the end of last season.
Reports have surfaced that Odom is currently suffering from a drug problem and that the two are separated. There has been no official word from either Odom or Kardashian’s camp conforming a separation.
