Lamar Odom Checks Into Rehab For Substance Abuse

Lamar Odom has checked into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, according to sources.

The NBA player has been in the news recently about alleged drug use. He was reportedly staying at a Los Angeles hotel two weeks ago, where his friends tried to help him kick his drug problem.

Odom was also arrested early last Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence. The police report said Odom’s car was observed moving in a “serpentine manner” before exiting the freeway.

The police report said the ball player initially refused to pull over when authorities tried to stop him, eventually coming to a halt minutes later. Odom showed “objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated,” the report said.

At the police station, Odom refused to take further chemical tests and he was subsequently booked for suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

He was released on $15,000 bail Friday morning.

Odom played last season with the Los Angeles Clippers and was pursued in free agency this summer by both the Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers.
