Lamar Odom CHARGED With Driving Under the Influence

Exclusive 0825-lamar-tmz-odom
Lamar Odom has just been charged with 1 count of DUI … our sources has learned.

our sources 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.
