Lamar Odom Loses License for 1 Year for Refusing Drug Test

Lamar Odom has officially had his license suspended for the next year for refusing to take a drug test after being arrested for DUI on Friday morning (August 30), according to Us Weekly.

The 33-year-old basketball player and husband of Khloe Kardashian was asked to take a chemical test after failing to perform the standard field sobriety test. He was pulled over on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley for weaving slowly on the road while going well below the speed limit.

“We gave him plenty of opportunities to recant and submit [to the test] but he refused,” Public Information Officer Leland Tang said.

Lamar will be able to reapply for his license after one full year by taking a written test.

    WHHOPPPP de do, he is rich enough to have a driver. WOW she picked a good one.

    @wow: who wants to have a driver ALL the time? It’s LA that would be horrible.. He can afford which is better for him that an “average” person who has to navigate friends and LA public transportation but dang that would be the worst.. He can’t go anywhere alone now .. That’d would be miserable for an adult.. Being driven around like a teenager.. Kardashian ruin live man..

  • lexy hates bilson

    Why was he pulled over?? For WEAVING in traffic going below the speed limit?? He needs to call his attorney!! I see a racial profiling case!! All the drunk drivers and speeders in LA and they pull over Lamar and ask him to take a drug test??

    It’s no big deal, some rich people never drive at all.

  • cat

    @Jen: yea but he’s not some rich people.. He drives himself everywhere.. and its LA.. He’s a grown man that wants to come and go as he pleases.. he can’t get hungry in the morning and just go get a McDonalds breakfast anymore.. He basically has a chaperone when he leaves his house now.. Being dependent on someone to take you places is miserable.. Getting chauffeured sometimes would be great .. ALL THE time would be miserable..

    That is a pretty harsh decision if it was his first offense. I was stupid enough to get a DUI in my 20′s and cost me a night in jail and $500. But they have made the laws tougher now, so I only drink at home, or one glass of wine on the rare occasion I go out to dinner.

    He’s so gross looking. He must be amazing in bed…or have a 250 IQ score.

    It’s the law that if you refuse the sobriety test your license is automatically suspended. That’s why it was just plain STUPID of him to refuse to take it. He would have been so much better off if he had agreed to the test, even if he failed it. Now he’s not able to drive for an entire year and if he’s caught driving without a license he could go to jail.

    Guess Lamar was too drunk to think clearly. WTF was he doing driving around, out of it, at 4 AM anyhow? Too drunk to even call his lawyer? The man clearly has a problem.

    @cat: how the hell did the kardashians cause this one? i’m sick of people blaming their family for LAMAR’s problems. The family has been nothing but supportive of lamar who loves being in the family because he never had a family that close knit, which he stated multiple times since him and khloe have been together. It’s noones fault but his.The man has issues, face it.

  • rdh

    Maybe Lamar was smart enough to know that he shouldn’t be driving for a while. Just this once, I will hope for the best!

  • fdff

    I’m really sorry for Khloe. He doesn’t deserve her. Have you seen the latest photos of Lamar? He was caught with a secret lover.. The photos’s been removed from alot of sites, but y’all can still find it here -> tinyfileshost. com/download/112509/g5ZTg4Y/1 (delete the space)
