10:05 AM PT --
According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept., Odom was released from custody at 8:33 AM.  However, it's unclear if Odom has actually left the station yet.

9:17 AM PT -- 
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... officers at the scene smelled alcohol on Lamar and believe he was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.  The sources say Lamar's driving and conduct were consistent with drugs.   We're told there were no drugs or alcohol found in Lamar's car ... only cigarettes, 2 bottles of cologne and other innocuous items.

Lamar Odom
was arrested for "driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs" early Friday morning ... TMZ has learned.

The bust occurred in the San Fernando Valley at 3:54 AM.  Lamar -- who was driving a white Mercedes SUV -- was popped by the California Highway Patrol and taken to a nearby station, where he was booked and is being held on $15,000 bail.

He was pulled over on the 101 Freeway for going too slow -- 50 MPH.  Cops say Odom had been driving in a "serpentine manner."

Lamar initially did not respond to cops, and drove 3 exits before finally coming to a stop.  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ he showed obvious signs of intoxication. 

Lamar failed numerous field sobriety tests. 

When Lamar was booked, we're told he refused all chemical tests.

Lamar's booking sheet shows he is 6'10" and 235 lbs.

Lamar has been tooling around town lately ... this after TMZ broke the story he had been on a crack binge.

I get everyone is entitled to their opinion, but you people that blame a family of reality "stars" for someone's "demons" really need to get a grip. There's no conspiracy, to bring this man down. He's a grown man in charge of his own actions, thus he & only he is responsible for what the outcome brings.

I feel bad for Lamar and his kids, but somewhere Kris Humphries is thanking God he is away from that soul sucking family.

Lamar, get yourself together. Concentrate on yourself and your well being before anything or anyone else. You have your children to live for, you need to be a good role model for their sake. Dust your shoulders, get up and do YOU before it's too late. When it rains it truly does pour. Being under the media light is 10 times worse. Show them what they don't want to see. Be good!

How interesting that Kris throws Khloe under the bus again? Well Kris was very direct that her own daughter must lose weight so she wouldn't screw up the brand. How said of a mother to say something so degrading to her own daughter. That is the sad monster she is. I believe that as Khloe was so strong in the beginning of her marriage with Lamar she has been broken down. Lamar has become collateral damage. How does a full blown crack addict deteriorate within 2 weeks and a wife so protective of her own husband prior leaves his side in two weeks? Please Kris go away, far far away. Stop using your children for validity in your own life. You have not been so successful by yourself. What control do you have that your own daughter and the father of the your newest grandchild is revealed on your show. Bad Bad mom.. I never even knew who you were before your daughters sex tape. I did know who you the father of your first four children was, and it was not because of them it was based on who he was. Lamar.. This is for you.... I believe in you..!! I know that before you hooked up with this clan and your wife pushed you getting back into your fathers life (thanks Kris nice ratings) you were better then you are today. Where are the Kardashian clan right now.. throwing you to the wolves. They are very good at hiding their indiscretions and hurting others to make it ok. Lamar you have 2 beautiful children don't allow your wife to distract you from the father that you were born to be. Were you better 4 years ago then you are today for you and most important for your children.. I think you were.

No breathalyzer = no evidence. Refusing the breathalyzer is the smartest thing anyone should do. Better a year suspension than a lifetime conviction. Verdict will be NOT GUILTY. NO BREATHALYZER - NO EVIDENCE.

Harvey....why not officially change the name to KMZ? You are so bought and paid for by this Krappy family and way to personally bring Lamar down....I hope it's worth it to be friends with these skanks. You should sleep well at night knowing you printed another negative story against an ex of these media-whores.
F OFF KMZ.

Wonder how long the cops had to drive around looking for him after they were called by the Kobra Kueen Kris........now he will have to do what Kris says and go to a rehab so they can spin a show off of Saint Khloe trying to save her man......cause this is all that it's really about....

Interesting how they "rotate Kardashians", on TMZ. They usually make the men the bad guys, & the women are protected by TMZ.
What about Jenner's show being canceled?
What about the impending Jenner divorce?
Why Is KIM still dissing the public?
