Officials at the Nye County District Attorney's office have confirmed that professional basketball player Lamar Odom could face further charges stemming from a weekend spent at a brothel, according to local sources. Nevada authorities are continuing their investigation into Odom's dealings, but they say drug crime charges could be forthcoming. Odom is currently still in the hospital recovering from unknown afflictions.
According to police, Odom is suspected of having been in possession of and using cocaine during his weekend-long stay at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada. A warrant obtained on Oct. 13 allowed police to take a blood sample from the recovering athlete. This test will corroborate or deny the belief that he may have overdosed on cocaine during the fateful weekend.
