Los Angeles, Nov 18 (IANS) Basketball star Lamar Odom, who was found unconscious after a four-drink and drug abuse at a Nevada brothel last month, may be charged for use of a controlled substance.
Odom reportedly had a blood test at a Las Vegas hospital and now the district attorney is considering prosecuting him for drug use, reports mirror.co.uk.
“The Nye county sheriff’s office has now asked the Nye county district attorney’s office to review a request for prosecution against Lamar Odom for use of, or under the influence of, a controlled substance,” Nye county district attorney Angela Bello said in a statement.
“The district attorney’s office will take the time needed to appropriately review that request, along with all evidence that might support that request, in order to reach a just conclusion regarding whether to advance charges,” she added.
Meanwhile, the 36-year-old sportsman is said to be doing well and estranged wife Khloe Kardashian has revealed he no longer needs “any machines to keep him alive”.
“Lamar is actually doing great compared to where he was. It was not looking good from where we started. But at this moment he is not on any machines to keep him alive anymore,” Kardashian said.
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star added that Odom’s “kidneys are recovered and all of his organs are pretty much recovered.”
“It’s more his brain is still affected and physically he has to learn how to walk again and he is learning how to feed himself again.”
