LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Lamar Odom has been arrested for allegedly driving under the influence.
The California Highway Patrol says Odom was stopped about 4 a.m. Friday after a CHP officer saw his white Mercedes-Benz traveling erratically on a San Fernando Valley freeway.
The CHP says the 33-year-old Odom was arrested after failing a field sobriety test.
Odom has been jailed on $15,000 bail.
A message for his agent, Jeff Schwartz, was not immediately returned.
The 6-foot-10-inch forward has played for both the Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers.
He became a free agent at the end of last season.
