KHLOE KARDASHIAN's basketball player husband LAMAR ODOM has been charged with DUI.
The sportsman was pulled over by police on 30 August (13), after he was allegedly caught driving too slowly on a Los Angeles highway.
Odom was unable to complete a field sobriety test, and then refused chemical tests to determine his level of alleged intoxication in custody. His driver's license was subsequently suspended as under California law, DUI suspects who refuse such tests are forced to give up their driving privileges for a year.
Now Odom has been officially charged with driving under the influence. He will be arraigned on 27 September (13), according to TMZ.com.
The criminal charge is the latest drama in Odom's life - his four-year marriage to reality TV star Kardashian has reportedly been rocked by rumors of his substance abuse, which he allegedly attempted to tackle by checking into a rehab facility shortly after his arrest. However, he left the medical center after just one day.
He is also facing a lawsuit from a paparazzo amid claims of assault, conversion and trespass of property relating to a confrontation this summer (13).
