LOS ANGELES -- Basketball star Lamar Odom has been charged with a misdemeanour count of driving under the influence, nearly two weeks after his Mercedes-Benz was pulled over on a Southern California freeway.
The Los Angeles city attorney's office said Friday 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 travelling 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.
