Lamar Odom - Lamar Odom won't be prosecuted for vandalism

Lamar Odom has agreed to undergo anger management counselling.

The 33-year-old basketball star appeared in the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office with his lawyer, Shawn Holley, on Monday (04.11.13), where he was informed he will not be prosecuted for allegedly vandalising a photographer's equipment in July, as long as he pays for the damage.

A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the hearing officer also told Lamar he must also stay out of trouble and seek help for his anger issues, and if he breaks the law within a year's time, criminal charges will be filed against him.

Stefan Saad filed a lawsuit against the former Los Angeles Clippers star, who was recently accused of being addicted to crack cocaine and cheating on his wife Khloe Kardashian, in September, accusing him of destroying more than $15,000 worth of his equipment.

He claimed Lamar opened his car and threw all of his photography equipment onto the street after Saad asked him questions about his marriage, and also accused Lamar of stealing some of his equipment.

Saad said the entire incident was caught on tape and he accused Kanye West, who is engaged to Khloe's sister Kim, of being partially responsible for the attack, claiming the rapper advised Lamar about how to deal with paparazzi.

The photographer is suing Lamar for assault, conversion (stealing property), and trespassing, demanding in excess of $565,000 in compensation.
