LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Lamar Odom has been arrested for allegedly driving under the influence.

The California Highway Patrol reports that 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 Odom, 33, was arrested after failing a field sobriety test.

Odom has been jailed on $15,000 bail.

This incident follows numerous media reports including TMZ which reported Odom has been tooling around L.A. recently on a drug binge.
