As more details emerge from Lamar Odom’s arrest for a DUI this morning, a secret arrest has been uncovered. Not to mention his wife, Khloe Kardashian, was also in the dark about it, apparently.
In 1997, when Lamar was playing basketball for the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels, he was booked for soliciting a prostitute in Las Vegas when he was 17 years old.
“Lamar approached a woman he believed to be a prostitute,” a source told the site. “When Lamar solicited her for sex, he was immediately arrested because the woman was actually an undercover cop, and was conducting a sting in the area.”
“He used bad judgment,” the source added of the situation, “and was only goofing around with his friend. Lamar was 17 at the time, and was trying to show off for his friends.”
In the end, the case was dismissed and Lamar only had to pay a small fine. Sources also told Radar that Khloe was “absolutely unaware of the prostitution arrest” because Lamar felt “it happened so long ago.”
As for his recent troubles this morning, Lamar’s driver’s license has been suspended for a year for choosing not to comply with a chemical test after failing a field sobriety test.
“Once you say ‘no’ you automatically lose your license,” California Highway Patrol Officer Leland Tang told the media. “People think you can do that but you can’t refuse a chemical test without consequences.”
Consequences Lamar is currently fully aware of.
