Well, guess I spoke a little too soon. When we saw footage of Lamar Odom driving his car at a Taco Bell drive-thru it appeared that was a good sign that LO was sober and behind the wheel.
Unfortunately, as reported by TMZ, Odom had been driving under the influence, and was arrested early this morning on a DUI charge. According to the report, he is still locked up on a hefty $15,000 bail.
Lamar Odom was arrested for DUI early Friday morning ... TMZ has learned.The bust occurred in the San Fernando Valley at 3:54 AM. Lamar 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.
Of course as you know, all of this comes on the heels of reports that Odom is battling a severe drug problem involving oxycontin, and even crack. His wife Khloe is said to be supportive of him and trying to help him.
There is no report on what substance he was on when pulled over. If it was drugs, hopefully this can help Lamar start on the path of recovery before this worsens and he injures himself or someone else.
