Capping a particularly chaotic week of headlines with the worst bit of news so far, professional basketball player Lamar Odom was arrested on Friday morning for driving under the influence. The NBA free agent was pulled over on Southern California’s 101 Freeway for driving in a “serpentine manner” and under the speed limit, as reported by the Los Angeles Times, and incarcerated for approximately three hours before posting the $15,000 bail.
The 33-year-old athlete has endured a tumultuous past few days as the center of rumors of drug addiction as well as marital problems with his wife Khloe Kardashian. For a brief period of time on Tuesday, Odom was reported to be missing by a variety of outlets, but was later revealed by agent Jeff Schwartz to be residing in a Los Angeles hotel in an attempt to deal with his newly publicized drug problems.
Already facing Odom are rumors of separation from Kardashian as well as a custody battle with his ex-girlfriend, the mother of his two children. The former Clipper is expected to face the Van Nuys Municipal Court on Sept. 27 as a result of this new DUI charge.
