NBA player Lamar Odom was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence after he was spotted driving erratically on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley, the California Highway Patrol said.
Odom, a free agent who has played for the Lakers and most recently the Clippers, was arrested at 3:54 a.m. and booked into jail in Van Nuys at 5:01 a.m., according to jail records.
CHP officials said they spotted Odom driving a white Mercedes sports utility vehicle eastbound on the 101 Freeway near Sepulveda Boulevard. The driver was driving in a “serpentine manner” at speeds of about 50 mph. He is being held on $15, 000 bond.
After days of speculation and rumors Lamar Odom was spotted at a local Taco Bell in his Mercedes Benz truck. Everything from him being addicted to Crack Cocaine, and splitting from his wife Khloe Kardashian has created a media circus for the couple, and the Kardashian family. Hopefully, there just speculation and rumors and the truth will unfold in due time. Either way Lamar Odom appeared to be safe and in his right state of mind.
