Lamar Odom

CHARGED WITH DUI

9/13/2013 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0825-lamar-tmz-odom
Lamar Odom has just been charged with 1 count of DUI ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Lamar was arrested August 30 at 3:25 AM on the 101 Freeway after cops saw him driving too slow.  He flunked several field sobriety tests and was then cuffed and taken to jail, where he REFUSED to submit to a blood alcohol test.

The fact that he refused the blood alcohol test actually helped him ... in that normally a defendant would be charged with 2 counts of DUI -- driving under the influence and driving with .08 or higher. 

Here's the bad news -- By refusing to take the test ... Lamar will have his driver's license suspended for 1 year.

As we first reported, law enforcement sources told us they believed Lamar was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.

If convicted ... the likely outcome would be probation and an alcohol ed course since he's a first-time offender.  These cases are almost always plea bargained.

Lamar will be arraigned on Sept. 27.

He has enough money for a driver, so it won't be a nuisance for him at all.

Sorry, my post was incomplete. Meant to include that drinking/drugging while driving is inexcusable and infuriating.

I had commented when this happened that you can still be charged with a DUI even with no testing, in my state. I looked it up and coulndn't find any info for CA. Guess most states you can be charged without a breathalyzer or blood test.

That's not fair he gets 1 instead of 2 charges for refusing the test and in return can afford being chauffeured around for a year.

People should just learn to take a taxi or stay where they are after drinking or doing drugs. If they want to die under the influence then fine, but don't hurt or kill innocent people because you need to move from point A to point B.

Maybe Lamar should take Dina in so she can share his driver and drink all day while he does his crack. Neither will demand rehab from the other - perfect union.
