Lamar Odom

Car Crash

Days Before DUI Arrest

breaking news

0830_lamar_odom_tmzLamar Odom allegedly pulled a Kylie Jenner just 6 days before his DUI arrest -- rear-ending another car and causing a chain-reaction collision on an L.A. freeway.

The 3-car accident occurred at around 6 PM on the 101 Freeway -- the same freeway on which Lamar was popped for DUI on Friday morning.

So how did the media find out about the story? Turns out ... the person Lamar hit is a reporter for the L.A. Times. It's unclear why the Times waited so long to publish the story.

According to the reporter, Lamar's white Mercedes slammed into the back of his ride near the Gower Street exit.

After the collision, the reporter says he tried to swap insurance info with Odom ... but the NBA star was resistant ... and insisted the damage "doesn't even look that bad."

Eventually, the reporter says he obtained Odom's insurance info ... but when he tried to give the insurance card back to Lamar, he bizarrely resisted at first ... before realizing he needed to have his insurance card to drive.

The reporter says the accident was not reported to the cops.

What is going on? Why is TMZ trying to destroy Lamar? This is so wrong. Harvey Levin should be ashamed of this site and what it has become. Time to find a new place to get the entertainment news.

My gawd! What is this crucifixion of Lamar Odom!
And he doesn't appear to care. Is he just going along with this or is it a big publicity stunt? Anyway,it is getting old & boring.Somebody expose Kris Jenner for what she is.The Kardashian/Jenners just become uglier & uglier.

So why does the dude's white car have damage to the front and high up? He hit the guy in front of him because Lamar hit him from behind? And isn't he, the reporter, responsible for hitting the car in front of him if that is the case?

Just get a PI to find out who his dealer is. he must live close to that area. when Lamar is cut off he well go into withdrwal, and take greater risk to score and that well get him busted for real. If he shows up someplace in withdrawl and sick you could try getting a 51/50 hold on him.
Have lo- jack put on all his cars and find out where he is going and catch him in the act of buying his drugs. Once one dealer gets busted it well be harder for him to score the dope. you can put spy wear on his phone too. Its not hard to out smart an addict. Have a friend of a friend tell him they got some dope and he well rush right over!
Lamar doesn't even realize he is in the press world wide so any where he goes he's gonna be seen.
He's in a haze.,. be easy to catch him in the act and cutt off his source.He can go to a treatment place that can put him under while he goes threw withdrawl. He wants help he just doesn't want to be dope sick, trick him them get him into a hospital.
