From ESPN:

NBA veteran Lamar Odom was arrested early Friday on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to police.

Odom was taken into custody at 3:54 a.m. local time after he was spotted driving “in a serpentine manner at 50 mph” on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley, the California Highway Patrol report said.

The police report stated that Odom continued to drive when authorities tried to pull him over before he eventually stopped. Odom showed “objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated,” the CHP report said. At the Van Nuys jail, Odom refused all chemical tests and was booked without incident at 5:01 a.m., CHP officials said.

Multiple media outlets reported Odom’s arrest earlier Friday.

Odom made headlines earlier this week for alleged drug use. A source told ESPN that Odom was staying at a Los Angeles hotel and friends were trying to help him deal with a drug problem. TMZ had reported that he was missing for 72 hours after a fight with his wife, Khloe Kardashian Odom. Odom’s agent refuted a TMZ report Sunday.

Odom spent last season with the Los Angeles Clippers and has been pursued in free agency this summer by the Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers.
