Lamar Odom was arrested for DUI in the wee hours of the morning. On Aug. 30, TMZ reported that Odom was pulled over on the 101 freeway for driving too slow. The police soon learned that the NBA star had been drinking and they promptly arrested him. Several reports claim that Odom is still in jail.
"[Odom] was popped by the California Highway Patrol and taken to a nearby station, where he was booked and is being held on $15,000 bail," TMZ reported. This arrest comes on the heels of reports alleging that Odom is a hard core drug addict and that he and his wife, Khloe Kardashian, are having some serious marital woes.
Lamar Odom DUI news certainly isn't helping the media frenzy surrounding his life. Over the past week or so, Lamar has been in the news every other day for different reasons. Many think that the pressure that is being put on him will cause him to crack -- and maybe this DUI will be his breaking point. Khloe can't be too thrilled with this news especially because it increases the already intense focus on the couple.
Neither Khloe nor Lamar have spoken out about any of these rumors directly. Many believe that Lamar will release some kind of statement soon but it seems like he has a lot on his plate right now.
Does Lamar Odom's DUI surprise you? Do you think he and Khloe will split?
