[Gossip] Lamar Odom Faces Potential Arrest Warrant

If he does not show up to court this week…
TMZ reports that Lamar Odom has to show up for his scheduled arraignment on Friday or face an arrest warrant.
Odom was arrested last month on a DUI charge. Currently, he's not required to show up to court to enter a plea. His lawyer can perform that action instead. However, if he does not show up, the judge will issue a bench warrant for Odom's arrest.
Previously, Kris Jenner contacted lawyer Robert Shapiro to represent Odom. Shapiro reportedly will only take the case if Odom seeks treatment for his drug addiction. In the past, Odom has seemingly refused to get treatment. It is not clear what Shapiro's situation is with Odom at the moment.
If Odom does not have representation, Odom can avoid an arrest warrant if he goes to court on Friday and asks the judge to put off the arraignment for a few weeks while he tries to get legal representation.
