*Lamar Odom will be charged with driving under the influence stemming from his Aug. 30 arrest, TMZ is reporting.
The 33-year-old athlete was pulled over in the wee hours of that Friday morning after cops spotted his white Mercedes-Benz SUV driving erratically and too slowly on Los Angeles’ 101 Freeway — not far from the Tarzana, Calif., home he shares with his reality-star wife Khloe Kardashian.
It’s one of several bumps in the road for Odom, who is reportedly battling a crack-cocaine addiction that is threatening his marriage. Kardashian, 29, has reportedly made several unsuccessful attempts to help her husband get clean.
At a minimum, Odom will have his drivers license suspended for a year – an automatic penalty after the Queens born 6-foot-10 forward refused to take a chemical test after his arrest.
“A chemical test is what is used to test for the presence of alcohol and drugs in the system and in this case Mr. Odom refused to submit,” Sgt. Denise Joslin, spokesman for the California Highway Patrol, told The News last month.
The police report filed after his arrest described Odom as showing “objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated.”
Odom, who is a first-time offender, will be arraigned on Sept. 27, according to TMZ.
