Lamar Odom has been charged with a DUI after being arrested on August 30. Odom now faces losing his driver’s license, according to TMZ on Sept. 13.
Odom was arrested in August on the 101 Freeway when he was observed by the police to be driving in a very slow manner. Odom was given several field sobriety tests. The police then arrested him and took him to jail where he was asked to take a blood alcohol test. Odom refused the test.
Since Odom refused, he will only be charged with one count of DUI instead of two counts. Unfortunately, since Odom refused to to take the blood alcohol test he will lose his driver’s license for one year.
Lamar Odom has been in headlines lately for drug abuse but it appears he may also have an alcohol problem. Odom will be arraigned on September 27.
