Felony drug case against Lamar Odom?

PAHRUMP, Nev. -- Prosecutors are considering a felony drug charge against Lamar Odom after the former NBA star was found unconscious last month at a Nevada brothel.

911 call reveals new details on Lamar Odom brothel incident

Nye County District Attorney Angela Bello said Monday that the sheriff's office submitted the potential charge last week, and a prosecutor is considering filing a count of unlawful use of cocaine or being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Bello declined to discuss details of what is expected to be a weeks-long investigation by her office.

Authorities investigating a possible cocaine overdose by Odom got a warrant on Oct. 13 to take a blood sample while he was hospitalized in critical condition after a weekend at the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada.

A family representative couldn't immediately be reached but has said Odom, the estranged husband of Khloe Kardashian, is recovering.
