Lamar Odom seems to be proving the rumors true that he has a substance abuse problem.
The embattled NBA player, reality star and Khloe Kardashian’s husband was spotted on the 101 freeway in the San Fernando Valley at 3:25 a.m. Friday driving his white Mercedes SUV in and out of lanes at a slow 50 mph. A California Highway Patrol spokesman tells RumorFix that officers pulled him and conducted a field sobriety test on the 33-year-old, which he failed. He was then arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs at 3:54 a.m.
Lamar was taken to jail at LAPD Van Nuys Division and booked for suspicion of DUI. His bail was set at $15,000 and he posted it and he was sprung at 8:33 a.m. Friday. No word yet on who posted bail and picked him up.
According to his booking sheet, the athlete is 6’10” and weighs 235 pounds. So much for the “gaunt” and weight loss rumors.
Hopefully this will be the wake-up call that all of his friends have been hoping for. He allegedly went missing last weekend and was the subject of an intervention by former NBA team mates earlier this week, which he reportedly walked out of. He’s since been back at home with wife Khloe but who knows what he was up to this morning as he was arrested while driving eastbound on the freeway AWAY from where the couple live, and at nearly 3:30 in the morning nonetheless.
