Lamar Odom was officially charged with a DUI according to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office on Friday. Lamar was arrested Aug. 30 after he was spotted driving erratically on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley. Meanwhile, Odom's former summer roommate Polina Polonsky, confirmed again that she witnessed the NBA star smoking crack, according to TMZ on Saturday, Sept. 14.
CHP officers arrested Lamar Odom, 33, after spotting him driving a white Mercedes sports utility vehicle on the freeway in a "serpentine manner", at speeds of about 50 mph.
According to their report presented in court yesterday, Odom displayed objective signs of intoxication, and was unable to perform the field sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated to him.
Once at the Van Nuys jail, Lamar refused all chemical tests and was booked without incident, according to the Los Angeles Times.
California drivers suspected operation under the influence may refuse to take tests in the field, but once at a police station they are required to submit to breath, blood or urine tests. If they refuse, they lose their driving privileges for a year.
Meanwhile, Odom's 6-week roommate at Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel, attorney Polina Polonsky, claims she has first-hand knowledge of Lamar's using crack.
Reports surfaced earlier this week that showed Odom and his driver leaving a drug store, with Chore Boy brand copper scrubbing pads clearly visible in shopping bags.
Polonsky, who earlier confirmed Lamar's drug habit, weighed in on the Chore Boy purchases. She said the copper scrubbing pads were always laying around the apartment when he was living there with her.
She claims she saw him use the pads on multiple occasions to make homemade crack pipes. Polina says her apartment was regularly littered with pieces of the copper pads, as well as empty Chore Boy boxes, while Lamar lived there.
There was a confrontation at one point during the summer, when Lamar's wife Khloe Kardashian busted into Polonsky's apartment and dragged him out of there.
She supposedly later used Odom's phone to send nasty texts to Polina, likely to try sever her ties with her husband.
