Odom charged with misdemeanor DWI

– Basketball star Lamar Odom has been charged with a misdemeanor count of driving while intoxicated, nearly two weeks after his Mercedes-Benz was pulled over on a Southern California freeway.

The Los Angeles city attorney’s office said Friday that the charges stem from Odom’s Aug. 30 arrest in the San Fernando Valley.

The husband of reality TV star Khloe Kardashian was taken into custody after a sobriety test.

The California Highway Patrol said Odom’s car was observed traveling in a “serpentine manner.”

The 33-year-old Odom could face six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted. Arraignment is scheduled for Sept. 27.

After spending the 2012 season with the Dallas Mavericks, Odom returned to the Clippers last year. He became a free agent at the end of the season.
