Lamar Odom Finally Surfaces: Arrested for DUI and "Serpentine Driving "

Basketballer and husband of Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom, has finally surfaced after his supposed "disappearance." And he was slapped with a DUI arrest on Friday, August 30, 2013. Media and police reports state that at around 3:54 a.m. Lamar was driving his white Mercedes down the San Fernando Valley Freeway in a "serpentine manner" when the California Highway patrol nabbed him. Apparently Lamar gave chase for some time before finally pulling over and miserably failing field sobriety tests.

The official report states Lamar exhibited "objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated." Authorities cuffed him and took him down to the Van Nuys jail. Lamar refused further drug, alcohol, and other chemical testing. Authorities booked him at 5:01 a.m. and began an investigation into his suspected driving while under the influence of drug and alcohol charge.

Upon posting a $15,000 dollar bail, Lamar was released later Friday morning. He has an upcoming hearing set for three months. His arrest follows reports that he had been missing for 72 hours then living out of a hotel following an argument with his wife. Rumors have been swirling that Lamar's tendencies to indulge in vicious drug and alcohol fueled binges have been the source of the marital strife and that his friends have worked fervently to help him get clean and sober.

So far, Lamar's agent has denied all of the reports regarding his client's drug and alcohol use and problems with Khloe.
