Lamar Odom has plead no contest to driving (very slowly) under the influence of alcohol last August.

Odom, a Los Angeles Clippers player and estranged husband of Khloe Kardashian, will be on probation for three years and he has to take a 3-month alcohol education class, according to Radar. Odom's attorney showed up in court to enter a plea for his client.

Odom was pulled over on the 101 Freeway last August for driving in a slow, "serpentine" manner. He didn't pull over for the California Highway Patrol for several exits. He refused to take a breathalyzer test, but he flunked all the field sobriety tests. Initially, he plead not guilty to DUI charges.

Odom recently agreed to random drug testing in return for a spot on the Clippers.
