Lamar Odom’s having one cruel summer.
For months, speculation has dogged Odom surrounding accusations of infidelity in his marriage and, more recently, substance abuse. And now, he faces his first set of criminal charges after being arrested on suspicion of drunk driving charges.
According to the LA Times, officers spotted Odom driving erratically – or as California Highway Patrol phrased it, “serpentine manner” – in San Fernando Valley at 3:54 a.m. on Friday. According to the CHP report, the Clippers big man showed “objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated.”
He was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and possibly drugs and booked into jail in Van Nuys at 5:01 a.m..
