Lamar Odom

No Charges

In Paparazzi Street Clash

Lamar Odom has dodged a bullet ... the NBA superstar will not be prosecuted for going berserk on a paparazzi in the middle of an L.A. street last month and breaking some of the guy's gear, TMZ has learned.

The cops had originally sent the case to the L.A. County D.A. for possible felony charges ... and the D.A. referred it to the L.A. City Attorney for possible misdemeanor vandalism charge.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Odom has agreed to pay for breaking the snapper's gear in the July 10 rampage.  So we're told the City Attorney will hold an office hearing -- an alternative to a prosecution -- in which Lamar and the photog will have a chit chat with the hearing officer about rights and responsibilities ... and that's about it. 

As we previously reported, Lamar blew a gasket that day after the photog (not a TMZ guy) blasted him with questions about rumors he was cheating on Khloe.

So in conclusion, Lamar went from possible felony ... to possible slap on the wrist ... to actual check (that's really just a drop in the bucket for a pro athlete/reality star).

Lamar wins.

lamar would not be known had it not been khloe marrying him. just exactly what he does to his ex wife, hoes, lakers and mavericks, LAMAR gets spoiled, thinks he is tied down or not getting the attention he wants and starts to turn on people. he uses people, teams, wives, becomes a problem then blames then for him becoming the problem. at that point he just becomes shady and figures "since im in already, whether marriage or fame/nortiriety from these groups or folks *uckem. im going to do me. its the same theme with everyone. im praying kris/khloe and family have a secret divorce plan up thier sleeves because just like the mavericks, lakers and his first ex wife...LAMAR USING SHADY ASS UNGRATEFUL SELFISH DOUCHE, resentful, 2 faced turd looking fool will get his suprise when he leasts expects it.

lamar is like the security gaurd that abuses his athority ...once he gets power fame or love his true colors show and its **** you! no more its about us the team or us husband/wife...is all about ME LAMAR *hit HEAD triffling POS. i hate this *otherfu*ker for bring khloe and family down. only reason he stopped reality is because he got what he wanted more fame and then he could not have piece of mind to cheat with the cameras around. KHOLE JUST DO U. *UCK THIS POS. LAMAR ODOOM YOU ARE GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL

Why do you call him a "superstar"? He's just a player with moderate skills at best. Plus, now he's not even a decent human being....
