    Lamar Odom warms up for the game with the Los Angeles Lakers in his first game at Staples Center after being traded by the Lakers, on January 16, 2012.

    Former Dallas Maverick basketball star Lamar Odom has been arrested for allegedly driving under the influence.

    The California Highway Patrol reports that Odom was stopped about 4 a.m. Friday after a CHP officer saw his white Mercedes-Benz traveling erratically on a San Fernando Valley freeway.

    The CHP says Odom, 33, was arrested after failing a field sobriety test.

    Odom has been jailed on $15,000 bail.

    A message for his agent, Jeff Schwartz, was not immediately returned.

    The 6-foot-10-inch forward has also played for the Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers.

    He became a free agent at the end of last season.
