Basketball star Lamar Odom was arrested early Friday on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the California Highway Patrol said.
The incident began at 3:25 a.m., when the 33-year-old athlete was observed driving in a “serpentine manner at 50 mph,” a highway patrol report said. Police pursued his white Mercedes SUV for about three miles before Odom stopped, the report says.
Odom “showed objective signs of intoxication and he was unable to perform his field sobriety tests,” police said in a news release. He was taken to Van Nuys Jail, where he refused all chemical tests, it said.With bail set at $15,000, Odom was released at 8:30 a.m. with a promise to appear at the Van Nuys Courthouse on September 27.
