Lamar was pulled over on the 101 Freeway for going too slow. Deputies at the scene smelled alcohol on Lamar and believe he was under the influence of both alcohol and drugs. He failed the field sobriety tests. People magazine reports that Lamar was released from jail at 8:30 that morning after posting $15,000 bond. He has, however, lost his driver’s license because he refused the chemical test, a decision that carries a one-year suspension. “Once you say ‘no’ you automatically lose your license.
