Lamar Odom Will NOT Be Charged With Drug Possession!

The good news just keeps coming for Lamar Odom.

Last week, Odom was released from the hospital after months of treatment following a near-fatal overdose back in November.

Now, the former NBA star has one less problem to deal with, as TMZ is reporting that Odom will not face criminal charges for possession of cocaine and other controlled substances. 

That may sound like a foregone conclusion, but there was a time when it really looked as though Odom might be in hot water for his activities at the Love Ranch brothel in the days leading up to his overdose.

Authorities in Nye County, Nevada stated their intention to press charges against Odom, and some expected prosecutors to try and make an example of the 36-year-old.

(As one of the few places in the country where prostitution is legal, Nye County reportedly receives more than its share of big-spending law-breakers.)

Earlier today, however, the Nye County DA's office announced that it will not file charges.

It's unlikely that they would've been able to make much of a case against Odom, but we're sure he's relieved that he won't have to go to court.

The man's got enough on his plate with the long road to recovery still ahead of him.
