Lamar Odom gets three years probation for DUI

Lamar Odom has been given three years probation for Driving Under the Influence (DUI).

The troubled basketball star struck a plea deal with a California court and has admitted no contest to the charge, in return for probation, having to complete an alcohol education class by next June and paying $1,814 in fees and fines.

Lamar - whose marriage to Khloe Kardashian has been rocked by allegations of infidelity and drug use - was arrested on August 30 after driving erratically on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles showing what officers called "objective signs of intoxication."

The reality star refused to a blood-alcohol test after his arrest, which led to automatic one-year driving ban, which still stands.

California Highway Patrol public information officer Leland Tang previously told RadarOnline: "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."

Lamar, 34, has also had to agree to random drug testing as part of his deal to play for the Los Angeles Clippers, as he tries to get his basketball career back on track.

A source said: "Lamar agreed to undergo random drug testing administered by the team, and if he returns one dirty test, he will be suspended from the team immediately."

Khloe and Lamar have temporarily split, and in a preview trailer for the new series of 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' he can be heard on the phone begging her to take him back.

He says: ''I would do anything to be accepted back by you guys. You guys are all I've got.''
