Lamar Odom was arrested Friday morning for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and possibly drugs after he was spotted driving erratically on a freeway in Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The California Highway Patrol spotted Odom driving in a "serpentine manner" at speeds of about 50 mph in a Mercedes Benz. Odom continued driving after being ordered to pull over. He showed "objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated," according to a CHP report.

Rumors have been swirling since Sunday that Lamar Odom has been missing, but a rep for the basketball player says he is fine according to TMZ. The source did not state his whereabouts.

The website also said that sources close to his family have been concerned that the former NBA player has been using drugs since his wife Khloé Kardashian "threw him out" of their house Aug. 21.
