Lamar Odom Officially Charged With DUI
According to TMZ reports:
Lamar Odom has just been charged with 1 count of DUI … TMZ has learned.
TMZ broke the story … Lamar was arrested August 30 at 3:25 AM on the 101 Freeway after cops saw him driving too slow. He flunked several field sobriety tests and was then cuffed and taken to jail, where he REFUSED to submit to a blood alcohol test.
The fact that he refused the blood alcohol test actually helped him … in that normally a defendant would be charged with 2 counts of DUI — driving under the influence and driving with .08 or higher.
Here’s the bad news — By refusing to take the test … Lamar will have his driver’s license suspended for 1 year.
As we first reported, law enforcement sources told us they believed Lamar was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.
If convicted … the likely outcome would be probation and an alcohol ed course since he’s a first-time offender. These cases are almost always plea bargained.
Lamar will be arraigned on Sept. 27.
Drugs too eh? Lamar’s pee would probably burn a hole through the cup…
