khloe kardashian lamar odom gets one year drivers license suspended dui arrest

This is NOT the best week for the Kardashian family to get behind the wheel, is it?

After Kylie Jenner caused a 3-car pile up yesterday, her brother-in-law, Lamar Odom, who's been having one of the ROUGHEST weeks of his life, foolishly got behind the wheel while under the influence and was busted for a DUI earlier this morning.

And, now we can confirm that his driver's license has been suspended for ONE YEAR, and he will have to reapply and take a written test when the suspension is up.

Like, we mentioned before, he was pulled over for going 50 mph on a 65 mph highway in El Lay and was unable to perform a field sobriety test.

Khloé Kardashian was not with him at the time of the arrest, but insiders do say that she is desperately hoping he will get help, adding:

"Khloé and the family are urging Lamar to seek treatment. She has been trying so, so hard to keep him from hitting a bottom like this, but if this is what needed to happen, then this is what needed to happen."

We have a feeling that if he doesn't submit himself to a treatment center soon, he will be required by law to do so… Make the right move, Lamar.

    That was pretty harsh sentence if that was his first DUI. Considering that his drug abuse has been all over the news, I guess he should be glad they didn't throw him in jail for a year.

    and yet I don't think Lindsay ever got hers suspended. could be wrong though. wonder if the drugs made it harsher. Now, I don't give a flip because he seems very troubled and maybe this was a wake-up call, but seems harsh.

    now I see why he got such a harsh sentence: After “failing to perform” when given field sobriety tests, Lamar was taken into custody and Tang said “He did what no one should ever do, he refused the chemical tests.

    “That means that his license is revoked and Lamar could get the most powerful attorney in the world and he is still not going to have a license for a year.”

    Hopefully he won't have to change his name to Lamar O.D.om. lol

    I think there is someone much better for her waiting in her future, a man she won't have to mother. (Or baby, and the first step toward that is to stop the baby talk. Ick.) So if she wants to wait around for LO to decide to get sober, which will probably be a while, since he'll have to do it himself, fine. But she's losing good years when she could be having children with someone healthy. LO has already made his choice.

    Khloe is admirable.

    I agree it does seem a bit harsh if it was a first time DUI.

    1. Sobriety tests are set up in a way that even a sober person can fail them.
    2. The only "test" that is completely accurate is a blood draw. NOTHING else is infallible. So it is best to refuse fields and breath tests, but if you have nothing to hide, ask for a blood test.
    3. His license will have been taken away with the intent of the officer requesting an administrative 1-yr suspension BUT everyone has 10 business days to request a hearing to dispute the suspension.
    4. His license is not gone for a year. Sorry. He will probably have a temporary permit while his DUI hearing and Suspension hearing goes on, unless you chooses to pled guilty to DUI, then it will be suspended for up to a year, depending on what the judge says.
    5. When someone is charged with DUI and they refuse to take breath or blood tests, there is no evidence that the DUI is for alcohol or drugs, therefore all DUI charges are assigned ie DUI-Alcohol, DUI-Drugs. They cover their basis.
