Former Lakers and Clippers forward Lamar Odom was arrested on Aug. 30 on DUI charges while rumors of a drug problem swirled around him for more than a month. Odom was due in court Friday on the DUI charge, but that's now been pushed back to Oct. 10. 

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- NBA star Lamar Odom had his arraignment rescheduled on Friday. He is charged with driving under the influence after being arrested last month.

Odom was not in court when a judge rescheduled the arraignment for Oct. 10. The 33-year-old free agent was arrested Aug. 30 after his Mercedes-Benz SUV was spotted weaving on a San Fernando Valley freeway in the early morning hours.

The DUI charge is a misdemeanor and includes an allegation that Odom refused to take a chemical test. He was released on $15,000 bail.

Friday marked the fourth anniversary for Odom and his wife, Khloe Kardashian, who this week dropped her married name from her Twitter account.
