Lamar Odom faces drug crime charges in Nevada

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.

According to the accident report, the crash happened sometime after 8 a.m. in Las Vegas. The driver of one of those vehicles, a 26-year-old man, was killed in the crash.

According to the police report, the 34-year-old man was suspected by deputies of driving under the influence of alcohol.

The man was described as being "distraught" during the encounter with police, and he is currently in custody being held on bail of $5,000. 

The bizarre encounter allegedly began when police were called to deal with a man who apparently jumped into the man-made lake surrounding Bellagio Fountains sometime on the evening of July 23. Apparently the 39-year-old man was spotted by bystanders who alerted bicycle units of the Metro police. The officers were soon joined by other police units as well as local firefighters and resort security in an attempt to extricate the man from the lake.

Skillful Defense Against Any Type Of PCS Or Marijuana Possession Charge

My only concern is securing the best available result for each client I serve. I am diligent If you are found in possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, a medication for which you have no doctor's prescription, club drugs or drug paraphernalia, I will present the strongest possible case to show that the drugs were not yours or that the police had no grounds to perform the search that led to the discovery of the drugs.

If the prosecution has compelling evidence in your case, I will pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction on your record. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible negotiate 3363 treatment that would allow for your case to be dismissed after you complete court-ordered classes or drug treatment.
