(CBS) LOS ANGELES - NBA basketball star Lamar Odom was arrested by the California Highway Patrol early Friday morning for misdemeanor driving under the influence, CBS Los Angeles reports.

Odom, who formerly played for the Los Angeles Clippers, was arrested at 3:54 a.m., jail records say, according to the station.

He was booked at 5:01 a.m. at the Los Angeles Police Department's Valley Jail in Van Nuys on $15,000 bail. It is unclear if he has posted bond.

TMZ reports authorities stopped Odom, who was driving a white Mercedes SUV, for going too slow on a freeway. According to the celebrity gossip site, Odom initially did not respond to cops, driving three exits before coming to a stop.

He reportedly failed numerous field sobriety tests and refused all chemical tests.

In recent weeks, TMZ has reported the 33-year-old, who is married to reality television star Khloe Kardashian, has been suffering from an alleged drug addiction.

Odom is currently a free agent after spending the 2012-2013 season with the L.A. Clippers. The 14-year NBA veteran played power forward for the L.A. Lakers between 2004 and 2011, winning championships in 2009 and 2010.
