Athlete enters the facility following a DUI arrest

Lamar Odom has been reportedly checked into a rehab center following a report from TMZ noting his ‘falling off the grid’ to the point not even his wife or family knew where he was.The status of Odom seemed to finally be given some clarity with the fact he showed up at the center. Odom was said to be the subject of multiple rumors regarding drug and alcohol abuse. People’s magazine reported “He realized he needs help,” a source says of the NBA free agent and husband of reality star Khloé Kardashian Odom.

An August TMZ report showed that Odom had gone missing while reports of his possible drug abuse problem began to surface. Jeff Schwartz, who works has Odom’s agents, initially refuted the claims and said that he had not vanished when interviewed by ESPN.com, saying “Lamar is not missing. His wife knows exactly where he is.”

ESPN.com reported that the former basketball star’s family and friends were “trying to get him help for an unspecified drug problem.” The line of concern, rumor, and questioning seemed to come to a predictable end following a DUI charge levied again Odom. The CBSLA.com reported on the arrest of the athlete:

“One of our officers observed a white Mercedes SUV driving eastbound on the 101, approaching Sepulveda. The vehicle was weaving in the lanes, driving at approximately 50 miles per hour,” Officer Ming Hsu told KNX 1070.

“Officers pulled Odom over around 3:25 a.m. after he exited the freeway at Coldwater Canyon Boulevard. He was arrested after he showed “objective signs or symptoms of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests as explained,” Hsu said.”

Later that day, TMZ reported more details regarding the incident:“He was pulled over on the 101 Freeway for going too slow — 50 MPH. Cops say Odom had been driving in a “serpentine manner. Lamar initially did not respond to cops, and drove 3 exits before finally coming to a stop. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ he showed obvious signs of intoxication. Lamar failed numerous field sobriety tests. When Lamar was booked, we’re told he refused all chemical tests.”
