On Friday morning, the arraignment of Lamar Odom was postponed until October 10 after acting judge Martin Herscovitz granted his lawyer’s request for a continuance.
HipHollywood was inside the Van Nuys courtroom around 10a.m. PST when a representative of Odom’s lawyer, Robert Shapiro, stood before the judge in connection with the 33-year-old’s August 30 DUI arrest. Just two minutes after approaching the stand, the judge ruled that Lamar’s arraignment would continue next month.
The NBA free agent, who was charged with one count of DUI, was not required to be in court because the charge is a misdemeanor. After the hearing, lawyer Richard Hutton was escorted out of the courtroom through a back entrance. Hutton did not address the media.
Last month, the former Clipper’s player was arrested after being spotted driving in a “serpentine” manner on a Los Angeles highway. The California Highway Patrol told HipHollywood that the reality TV star showed signs of intoxication and was unable to perform filed sobriety tests. He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and or drugs.
After being taken into custody, the NBA veteran refused to take all chemical tests and as a result, his license was suspended for one year.
