In the early hours of the morning on Friday August 30th, 2013, veteran NBA forward Lamar Odom was arrested by the California Highway Patrol in the San Fernando Valley on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
According to California Highway Patrol officer, Leland Tang, Odom was swerving and driving dangerously when he was pulled over by the police. Odom showed visible signs of intoxication and failed every field sobriety test. After Odom was arrested and delivered to the police station, he refused to submit to chemical tests to determine the level of alcohol in the blood. Pursuant to California Department of Motor Vehicles regulations, Odom’s driver’s license has been suspended for one year for the refusal to submit to the chemical tests. An inventory search of Odom’s car revealed no alcohol, drugs or other contraband.
Odom’s arrest for drunk driving comes on the heels of the worst season of his already declining professional basketball career. Furthermore, Odom’s wife, Khloe Kardashian, has spoken publicly about the couple’s marital problems, including Odom’s alleged cheating.
One NBA executive has stated that Odom’s arrest and possible conviction, coupled with his age and lack of productivity on the basketball court, mean that he will likely never play in the NBA again.
