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 would venture to say Khloe is having his every move tailed by her "P.I.'s." Wouldn't doubt that the initial traffic stop wasn't initiated by an assisted alert. I'm hoping Lamar gets help and gets out before its too late.

Young Jenner daughter causes three car crash. Cars were hit from the back. Jenner daughter leaves scene before Cops come. Was she a DUI, Drugs, or texting. They ALL can cause death. MYOB Kris and take care of your daughter that you put in an expensive car and let her go.

OK. Everybody has got to get off the K family bashing bandwagon. I agree with everyone's comments but, it's so not about them now. Lamar is in terrible serious trouble, I read last night before this happened that that Mitch Kupchak said that if Lamar gets help and goes and completes Rehab the Lakers would take him back. I thought, Great! A reason for Lamar to get help and have hope for a future. Apparently not. Ugh! What a Nightmare!

Oo boy this is all a bit "wrapped in a nice little box" convenient. I wouldn't be surprised If kris Jenner pitches this entire topic for a kuwtk special. I honestly feel like khloe kardashian loves Lamar but she's just a puppet. I hope this all has a good ending

From ROL:

After “failing to perform” when given field sobriety tests, Lamar was taken into custody and Tang said “He did what no one should ever do, he refused the chemical tests.

“That means that his license is revoked and Lamar could get the most powerful attorney in the world and he is still not going to have a license for a year.”

Driving too slow...sounds like he was paranoid...probably on crack! Maybe this is a SIGN Lambie - that you need to listen to your wife and get some HELP!!!!

He's such a nice guy, I hope he gets his life straightened out and doesn't become a statistic!
