Lamar Odom will not be prosecuted for damaging a photographer's equipment last month during an alltercation in a street near the NBA star's home in Los Angeles, over rumours he'd cheated on wife Khloe Kardashian with stripper Jennifer Richardson.
In footage shot at the scene on July 10, Lamar can be seen being questioned as to whether he'd cheated on wife Khloe Kardashian Odom after allegations by Jennifer Richardson that she'd enjoyed a drawn out affair with the star. After denying the allegation the frustrated athlete can be seen leaving his vehicle and going over to a photographer's car and proceeding to take equipment out of it and throwing it across the street.
Following the incident police had sent the case to the L.A. County District Attorney over possible felony charges, who then referred it to the L.A. City Attorney for possible misdemeanor vandalism charges, however TMZ have reported that according to sources Odom will not be prosecuted over the damage.

They claim the star has agreed to pay for damage caused by the July 10 incident and will be required to attend an office hearing by the City Attorney where the pap and Odom will discuss with the hearing officer about rights and responsibilities, according to sources, which is said to be an alternative to prosecution.
Khloe and Lamar have been hit with claims of cheating by two women over the last two months. Initially Jennifer Richardson, 29, a dancer from Washington D.C. claims to have had a year long affair with the star in an interview with Star magazine published this July.
More recently he's been accused again of cheating, this time with Los Angeles-based lawyer Polina Polonsky, who claimed to have had a six week fling with the LA Clippers star, which began after a chance meeting at an LA hotel in June this year.
Detailing her alleged affair the lawyer also told Star magazine said: “I was under the impression that he had left Khloe, and that’s why he was living at the Roosevelt.
“He acted completely available and we definitely had a mutual attraction.”
