by August 30, 2013

NBA free agent forward Lamar Odom’s nightmarish summer continues to get worse — Odom was busted for driving under the influence early Friday morning, report TMZ and the LA Times: “The bust occurred in the San Fernando Valley at 3:54 AM. Lamar was popped by the California Highway Patrol and taken to a nearby station, where he was booked and is being held on $15,000 bail. He was pulled over on the 101 Freeway for going too slow — 50 MPH. Lamar did not respond to cops, and drove 3 exits before finally coming to a stop. […] 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. Authorities tried to pull over Odom, but he continued driving eastbound, passing Van Nuys Boulevard and Woodman Avenue. He exited at Coldwater Canyon Boulevard and came to a stop, CHP officials said. Odom showed ‘objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated,’ according to a CHP report. Odom was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and possibly drugs. At the Van Nuys jail, Odom refused all chemical tests and was booked without incident, CHP officials said.”
