Former Miami Heat star and Kardashian clan standout Lamar Odom was arrested for DUI this morning in California.
The troubled Odom, who lives in Pinecrest for parts of the year, was nailed by CHiPS patrolmen after he drove slowly and erratically on a highway near Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Times.
At the wheel of his Mercedes SUV, Odom allegedly continued for several miles and refused to stop. He’s out on $15,000-bond.
The center played for the Heat in 2003-04 but was traded to the L.A. Lakers in a deal that brought Shaquille O’Neal to the Heat, and eventually the team’s first NBA championship.
Odom, 33, who’s married to reality TV star Khloe Kardashian and starred with her in VH-1’s Khloe & Lamar, has been making headlines during the off-season.
He was recently photographed opening a door of the car of a paparazzo then tossing his equipment on the road. He escaped prosecution in that incident.
But allegations of crack use and cheating on Kardashian have been rampant this summer.
