After being pulled over by cops on August 30 for driving too slowly on the 101 and then failing several sobriety tests, Lamar Odom has been charged with a DUI.

TMZ reports that the basketball star and Kardashian husband is being hit with one DUI charge for the incident, during which he also refused to submit to a blood alcohol test. Because of that, though, he will have his driver's license taken away.

Odom has been facing a slew of problems lately, with rumors flying that he's addicted to crack, checking into rehab, on the outs with his wife, and in denial about all of it.
