Lamar Odom was pulled over and arrested for DUI at 4am Friday morning in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ:

The bust occurred in the San Fernando Valley at 3:54 AM.  Lamar — who was driving a white Mercedes SUV — 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.

He was pulled over on the 101 Freeway for going too slow — 50 MPH.  Cops say Odom had been driving in a “serpentine manner.”

Lamar initially did not respond to cops, and drove 3 exits before finally coming to a stop.  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ he showed obvious signs of intoxication.

Lamar failed numerous field sobriety tests.

When Lamar was booked, we’re told he refused all chemical tests.

Lamar’s booking sheet shows he is 6’10” and 235 lbs.

 

Law enforcement sources tell report that officers at the scene smelled alcohol on Lamar and believe he was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.  The sources say Lamar’s driving and conduct were consistent with drugs. There were no drugs or alcohol found in Lamar’s car — just cigarettes, 2 bottles of cologne and other innocuous items.
