Lamar Odom

Arrest Warrant Looms

Lamar Odom
could be a wanted man Friday ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Lamar was arrested last month for DUI.  His arraignment is set for Friday.  He's not required to show up in court to enter a plea -- his lawyer can do the trick.

Here's the problem.  If no one shows up, the judge will issue a bench warrant for Lamar's arrest.  And based on what we know, if cops find Lamar ... they will also find plenty of illegal drugs.

As we reported ... Kris Jenner contacted famed lawyer Robert Shapiro to represent Lamar, but that was before Lamar went MIA on the Kardashian family. 

TMZ reported several weeks ago ... Shapiro would ONLY take the case if Lamar would seek treatment for his addiction.  We are positive ... Lamar is not only refusing treatment, he's deeper into drugs than ever before.

It's unclear if Shapiro will change his tune and represent Lamar.  It's also unclear if Lamar has even formally hired Shapiro.

There is one way Shapiro can help Lamar dodge an arrest warrant -- by going to court Friday, and asking the judge to put off the arraignment for a few weeks while Lamar nails down who will rep him.

Stay tuned.

He needs to be brought in on a bench warrant. Enough is Enough. Why should the Kardashians/Jennets bother to help him anymore. Poor Khloe.

If the Kardashian family really wants him to get help, Shapiro won't show up to court on Friday. Let them issue an arrest warrant. Let them arrest Lamar. He won't seek treatment, force him to get it with imprisonment. Arrest him, hold him a few weeks, force him to get clean and then sentence him to a rehab that he cannot leave.

So they *could* issue a warrant (if they feel so inclined) *if* he doesn't show up in court and his lawyer doesn't show up in court?


Come on, TMZ. Do you really think a guy like LO - who can clearly afford a top notch lawyer - is just going to blow off court?

TMZ,
People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.


It's a known fact that the TMZ staff are a bunch of druggies that get high at work.


Max,

NOW TMZ, THIS STORY IS RIDICULOUS....SHAPIRO IS THE ATTORNEY OF RECORD AND IT DOESN'T MEAN SQUAT ABOUT ANY CONDITIONS WITH LAMAR...SHAPIRO IS REQUIRED BY CALIFORNIA STATE LAW TO SHOW UP, UNLESS LAMAR HAS SECURED ANOTHER LAWYER...SO WE'LL BE SEEING SHAPIRO ON FRIDAY...AND BY THE WAY, SHAPIRO NEVER EVER GIVES UP AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET TV FACE TIME...WRITE UP A STORY WHEN A WARRANT HAS BEEN ISSUED, TOO MUCH ZILCH!!!!

shapiro will only take lamar as a client if he seeks help. that is his condition? there are plenty of lawyers available for hire who dont care what lamar does regarding help or not for addiction perhaps lamar does not want to be married to khloe and perhaps lamar wont go home to khloe cus she kicked him out to get help lamar dosent want help, lamar dosent want to go home to his wife since she threw him out so leave the guy alone. is his life and nobody elses freaking clinger kardashians still clinging to a drug abuser who dose not want the help since his wife threw him out and now mom jenner wants him to hire a lawyer with a condition he get help only person who can place conditions on lamars life is a judge who court orders he seek help.. good grief. he can find plenty of lawyers to hire without conditions.
