    Lamar Odom is getting help.

    Khloé Kardashian Odom's husband of nearly four years has checked into rehab, less than a week after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, sources tell E! News.

    Lamar was arrested at 3:54 a.m. on Friday after California Highway Patrol pulled him over for allegedly driving erratically while heading east on L.A.'s 101 Freeway. He was taken into custody and authorities later said that he refused to take a chemical sobriety test.

    The 33-year-old NBA star was booked on misdemeanor charges of DUI and refusing to take a chemical test and released later that morning after posting bail.

    A court date is scheduled for Sept. 27. Lamar is not compelled to appear alongside his attorney because the charges are misdemeanors.

    "It only looks good for him to seek treatment," L.A. criminal defense attorney Troy Slaten, who is not involved with Lamar's case, told E! News last week, saying that he would recommend any client of his in the same situation to get help as soon as possible.

    "It looks like you are addressing [the issue] before the court, before you are being forced to," Slaten said. "It looks good to do it on your own."
