Prosecutors consider charging Lamar Odom over brothel overdose

Prosecutors in the U.S. are considering a felony drug charge against Lamar Odom after he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.

Nye County District Attorney Angela Bello said on Monday that the Sheriff’s office submitted the potential charge last week.

It’s understood a prosecutor is considering filing a count of unlawful use of cocaine or being under the influence of a controlled substance.


Bello declined to discuss details of what is expected to be a weeks-long investigation by her office.

Authorities investigating a possible cocaine overdose by Odom got a warrant on October 13 to take a blood sample while he was hospitalised in critical condition after a weekend at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada.

The former NBS star and estranged husband of reality TV star Khloe Kardashian, is said to be recovering.

Khloe’s sister Kim Kardashian has said Odom’s recovery will be a long journey.
