Trouble: Lamar Odom, seen making a stop at Taco Bell on Wednesday, was arrested for DUI in the early hours of Friday morning

On Friday morning, Khloe's husband Lamar Odom was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in the early hours of Friday morning.

The NBA star, 33, was held at Van Nuys police station on $15,000 bail but was released from custody at 8.30am.

He was pulled over just before 4am for driving too slow at 50mph on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley.

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.

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 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.'

To make matters worse, it has now been revealed that Lamar was paid a visit by two drug councelors just hours before he was charged with a DUI.

TMZ reports that the counselors - who work with the National Basketball Players Association - contacted Lamar to offer help and he accepted.
