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.

This whole entire mess will be great for the ratings. They are making damn sure to leak as much info out on him as possible losers.

NBA-No Blood Alcohol for Me, Im an Athlete    

Why does the NBA let confirmed drug users play in the league in the first place, thats a great example to set for kids who unfortunately see guys like this as "role models".. Give me a break. Who cares who he's married too, he's a addict. Get him off the court and into rehab where he belongs

Sorry, I am tainted by the Kardashian publicity machine. Kris and company is getting stale. IMHO this is a calculated publicity ploy for a dying franchise. Drug fueled bender? DUI arrest? really??

Kris: Lamar!
Lamar: Yes Kris?
Kris: I need you to do something for me...

Better for him to hit bottom now that he has a chance to still salvage his career. I always said he was on something...in every interview he had this vapid-glassy eyed look. About time he got busted. Refusing tests so the public won't know "exactly" what he was on tells me it was stronger than alcohol. Go get some help; volunteer in a third world country and be thankful for what you have!!

Ok I feel sorry for him now. He needs to get away from that crazy ass family and get himself some help so he can be a good father. His children are the true innocents!

Why are people blaming the Kardashians for this GROWNS MAN'S behavior? HE needs to be held accountable for HIS actions, being arrested for DUI is a start. Whether he has the best or worst wife/family in the world does not matter, he is an ADDICT in need of help. I hope this DUI is a turning point for him, sober/clean life. It's not fair to blame others for an addict's behavior. This is HIS journey to recovery, nobody did this to him, he has done it to himself.
