Clippers’ Lamar Odom investigated in paparazzo confrontation
Los Angeles Clippers forward Lamar Odom is being investigated in connection with a reported battery and grand theft incident involving a paparazzo in Hollywood, L.A. police said Thursday.
The incident, which was captured on video, took place around 4:45 p.m. Wednesday on El Cerrito Place near Franklin Avenue.
The video shows a photographer questioning Odom about whether he was having a relationship with a woman other than his wife, Khloe Kardashian.
Odom then appears to confiscate a rolling bag believed to contain camera equipment, place it in the trunk of his white Mercedes coup and drive off.
In the same video, he appears again on Hollywood Boulevard removing the items from his trunk and leaving them on the street.
No arrests were made in connection with the incident, said LAPD spokesman Bruce Borihanh.
But sources familiar with the investigation confirmed that an incident report was taken by LAPD officers and that it involved possible felony grand theft, as well as battery.
