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.

Leave Lamar alone. Being prone to addiction is genetic in nature.His wife needs to ask herself WHY she is attracted to such individuals. It is likely"co-dependecy issues." The mother really has damaged her offspring & it all is coming out.

I don't understand why these rich MFs don't call a freaking limo or a taxi when they're drunk, instead of getting behind the wheel?

it's really strange that Lamar has an ALLEGED drug problem for so many years yet he's never been pulled over or arrested and we've heard NOTHING about it.
.
ALL OF A SUDDEN (coincidence?) he's "caught" cheating and BAM his drug abuse and alcohol problems are all over the media....THEN he gets PULLED OVER for DUI.
.
Didn't Mike say on TMZ LIE that Khloe does not want this playing out in the media....yet 5 days AFTER that comment is made - here it is - playing out in the media AND getting worse.

Alright, so Lamar is burning out and it's sad. But TMZ has no proof that he was on a crack binge, just their convenient sources.

Seems like a set up to me. In my opinion, the Kardashian clan probably called the police & snitched so he would get arrested for DUI. The Judge will most likely court order him into treatment since they cant force him to go.

Wow, some of you guys are so mature. How would you guys feel if you were his wife? Lamar, as nice as a person he is, was not only accused of taking drugs, but he has been accused of cheating on her for years. I feel terrible for Khloe, she is a very nice and beautiful woman and doesn't deserve what is happening to her right now. You can tell that she is stressed to death, and is going through a lot right now and is STILL willing to help her husband. You guys must think you're real funny with comments like "her evil family drove him to drink", or "marrying that ugly piece of trash, I wouldn't blame him for taking drugs." How about grow up? It's disgusting behaviour from a bunch of "adults." So before you make your stupid comments, atleast take her feelings into consideration. Anyways, I actually do hope Lamar gets the help he needs because as I said before, he seems to be a nice and genuine person. I also hope that Khloe and Lamar remained married because they were and are (obviously not right now) a great couple.

He is crying out for help..Maybe he needs someone in his conor that won't leak everything to the media. I know Khole loves him, but maybe he needs some love from his father. I read a long time ago he had a drug problem.
