Things continue to get worse for Lamar Odom. The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Odom was arrested in Los Angeles at 3:54 a.m. Friday morning and booked on suspicion of DUI. The details are sad:

CHP officials said they spotted Odom driving a white Mercedes sports utility vehicle eastbound on the 101 Freeway near Sepulveda Boulevard. The driver was driving in a "serpentine manner" at speeds of about 50 mph.

Authorities tried to pull over Odom, but he continued driving eastbound, passing Van Nuys Boulevard and Woodman Avenue. He exited at Coldwater Canyon Boulevard and came to a stop, CHP officials said.

Odom showed "objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated," according to a CHP report.

Odom was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and possibly drugs.

This comes on the heels of numerous reports alleging that Odom has an unspecified drug problem that he has recently been trying to deal with while holed up in a hotel room in Los Angeles.
