Lamar Odom was headed to his bachelor pad loft in downtown Los Angeles when he was arrested for a DUI, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The drug-troubled 33-year-old NBA player — who has been dealing with addiction issues and a troubled marriage with his reality television star wife Khloe Kardashian — was busted in the early morning hours of Aug. 30 for allegedly driving under the influence.
The former Clipper power forward “was on his way to his bachelor pad loft in downtown Los Angeles. Lamar had been at home with Khloe and it’s very likely she was asleep and had no clue he had left,” the source told us.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported , 29-year-old Khloe kicked Lamar out of their Tarzana, Calif. mansion because of his cheating and he had been shacking up in a hotel.
However, after he issued an ultimatum to her, threatening that if she didn’t let him back in he would file for divorce, Khloe acquiesced and allowed him to move back in on August 26.
According to a spokesperson for the CHP, “Lamar Odom was driving 50 mph on the 101 freeway. He was driving in a serpentine manner which is pretty bad. That is like when the officer does a freeway break. Across all the lanes of the freeway. I’m surprised he wasn’t rear ended.”
After “failing to perform” field sobriety tests, Lamar was taken into custody.
Tang said, “He did what no one should ever do, he refused the chemical tests. That means that his license is revoked and Lamar could get the most powerful attorney in the world and he is still not going to have a license for a year.”
