Lamar Odom did not immediately respond to police, passing three exits and driving erratically, TMZ reports.

He failed numerous field sobriety checks but refused all chemical tests, according to police.

Leland Tang, the California Highway Patrol public information officer, told Radar Online: “Lamar Odom was driving 50 mph on the 101 freeway. He was driving in a serpentine manner which is pretty bad. That is like when the officer does a freeway break. Across all the lanes of the freeway. I’m surprised he wasn’t rear ended.”

After “failing” field sobriety tests, he was taken into custody and Leland Tang said: “He did what no one should ever do, he refused the chemical tests.


“That means that his license is revoked and Lamar could get the most powerful attorney in the world and he is still not going to have a license for a year.”

It follows weeks of troubling allegations about drug abuse and serious marriage issues with his wife of four years.

Reports claim Lamar Odom has been battling a drug addiction for two years.

Lamar Odom has also been accused of cheating with two different women while on the road as a basketball player.
