Los Angeles: Khloe Kardashian`s husband Lamar Odom has been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Odom, 33, who has been accused of cheating on his socialite wife, was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol not for speeding but rather for going too slow on 50 MPH, reported Ace Showbiz.

"Today at roughly 3:25 AM, our officers observed a white Mercedes SUV driving eastbound on the 101 freeway approaching Sepulveda. Our officer observed it weaving in traffic lanes at a slow speed," Sergeant Denise Joslin said.

"We conducted an enforcement stop. The driver continued eastbound,he came to a stop just south of the freeway and was identified as Lamar Odom. He showed objective signs of intoxication, was unable to perform field sobriety tests, and he was subsequently placed under arrest and transported to LAPD`s Van Nuys facility and he was booked there at 5:01 AM," he added.

The NBA star`s driving license is expected to get suspended after he refused to take chemical tests. He was held for USD 15,000 bail. Hours later the police released him.

A court date is set for September 27.
