Lamar Odom Pleads NOT GUILTY To DUI


Lamar Odom has just pled not guilty to DUI stemming from his arrest in August.

The former NBA star was not in court, but his lawyer, Rich Hutton, entered the plea on his behalf.

TMZ broke the story ... Lamar has what has become a life-threatening drug problem, which includes big issues with crack.  He was busted for "driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs" on August 30th.

According to police, Lamar failed numerous field sobriety tests following the traffic stop in L.A. and refused all chemical tests when he was booked.

A pretrial date has been set for next month. In the meantime, Lamar has been ordered to obey all laws.
