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.

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.

I don't know about the whole fake ploy aspect of it but I can believe that perhaps Khloe called her family, because he took off in the middle of the night. And in turn, under the guise of being "concerned", they (read: Kris) notified the PD about the situation. I could believe that they (read: Kris) would want to "prove" to the skeptical public that he really does have an issue.

Come on, if we are gonna talk shlick about this whole situation, we gotta be more creative than the 9,000 comments of the same nature: "If I was married to a Kardashian, I'd take drugs and drink too." Ya'd think after the same line was posted over and over and over again, it would stop. That joke has been stretched more than Bruce Jenner's face --- at least I tried to make up a new joke ;-)

Please don't chew this guy up in the media grinder and spit him out. He seems like a sweet soul and a very good guy. I know it makes great sport to plaster other's problems all over headlines, but don't contribute to another loss. Please pray for Lamar in whatever fashion works for you.

Another stupid joke I just thought of --- I always thought Lamar was a little 'slow' but not '50mph-on-a-freeway-slow' - now that's slow. But even combined, I'm sure Lamar is not even as 'slow' as Kim and Kourtney combined. That Kourtney - I think both her kids are wiser RIGHT NOW, more than she will ever be. She is the female version of Kris Humphries.

Looks to me like Pimp Momma took his car out of pound and gave it to the Kash Baby Kendel....They have her diving it in their lates Kardsahion story.....or do they all drive White or Black Mercsedes Tanks around LA....I smell the usual Kardashion Shyt spin going own....What Happened Lamar didn't buckle under and kiss her ass good enough.....
Tell me something folks do they always stop "SLOW drivers in LA for traffic stops ? and last question is I wonder how close behind Lamar car was Kris's spy was when the police puted him over....close enough to phone PimpMomma before they even got to the station thats for sure cause the story hit the site before he was even booked....

Finally something worth talking about. Kris may mean well but tovtell Khloe to leave Lamar instead of giving BOTH of them love and support just proves to everyone what we already knew. Kris Kardashian is a taker and since Lamar is the one in need she wants him gone. Khloe deserves a golden crown for her love, courage, support and committment to her husband and her marriage. Mom is more concerned with the family reputation and that is EXTREMELY shallow. Khloe....you hang on girl....Kris....SHAME ON YOU.
