California Highway Patrol Officer Leland Tang told the newspaper that Odom was unable to complete a field sobriety test, and that the NBA player then refused chemical tests to determine his level of suspected intoxication once he was at the station.
Drivers suspected of a DUI are allowed to refuse to take tests in the field, but if they refuse such tests once they are at a police station, they lose their driving privileges for one year.
As first reported by TMZ, Odom, 33, was arrested in the San Fernando Valley at 3:54 a.m. He was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol on the 101 Freeway for going 50 mph, and driving in a "serpentine manner," according to the site. Odom didn't pull over right away and drove three exits before finally coming to a stop.
After his arrest, Odom was taken to the police station and booked. He was released more than three hours later, after posting $15,000 bond. He is due back in court on Sept. 27.
