NBA player Lamar Odom was arrested on early Friday morning for driving while intoxicated in the San Fernando Valley in California.

Odom was pulled over on the 101 Freeway for going too slow, about 50 miles per hour, reported TMZ

He was arrested at 3:54 a.m. by California Highway Patrol officers, reported the Los Angeles Times

Odom continued driving for a time after authorities tried to pull him over, then came to a stop after exiting at Coldwater Canyon Boulevard.

Odom then failed multiple field sobriety tests. When he was arrested he refused all tests to see how intoxicated he was.

He’s being held on $15,000 bail in Van Nuys.

Odom, who is married to reality television star Khloe Kardashian, has reportedly gone incommunicado at times recently while possibly using crack cocaine.
