Lamar Odom

No Prosecution

For Camera Smashing

Lamar Odom
has just dodged a bullet -- he will NOT be prosecuted for trashing a photog's equipment  ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. City Attorney will not file criminal vandalism charges against Khloe's hubby for destroying a camera guy's equipment last month in Hollywood.  Instead, as TMZ reported several days ago, the matter will be set for an informal hearing in the City Attorney's office.

The hearing is basically a sit down with both Lamar and the photog.  The hearing office will explain the ground rules when there's a dispute between a celeb and the paparazzi.  It's possible ... at the end of the hearing, Lamar could be ordered to attend anger management classes.

But short story ... victory for Lamar.

The celebrity Get Out Of Jail Free card played yet again... A regular person wouldn't just get a slap on the wrist and club rehab classes.

Al Sharpton expressed his anger at the way Lamar was treated by the DA. "He didn't bend over and kiss Lamar's behind?" Sharpton pondered. At last reports Sharpton and Jackson are scheduling a protest calling attention to the DA's obvious racism.

TMZ should find out how much the LA City Attorney's get paid to not file charges? I heard it's like a $10g minimum.

I hope the check he had to write seriously hurt. What do you expect when you marry into a pack of hyenas who made a sex tape to get the public's attention. Now that the pubic has realized that every moment of their lives is scripted, it's starting to hurt. ANd the photog should hire Gloria Allred.
