Former Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Lamar Odom has been arrested for allegedly driving under the influence.

The California Highway Patrol reports that Odom was stopped about 4 a.m. Friday after a CHP officer saw his white Mercedes-Benz traveling erratically on a San Fernando Valley freeway.

The CHP says Odom, 33, was arrested after failing a field sobriety test.

Odom has been jailed on $15,000 bail.

A message for his agent, Jeff Schwartz, was not immediately returned.

The 6-foot-10-inch forward has played for both the Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers.

He became a free agent at the end of last season.
