Lamar Odom 'could face charges over pap attack'

Lamar Odom could face charges for allegedly attacking two paparazzos and destroying their equipment during an altercation this week.

Khloé Kardashian's basketball star husband was captured on video during an altercation with the men in Hollywood, California Wednesday.

The photographers had reportedly asked him to respond to allegations of infidelity.

"I would never cheat on my wife, that's why I wear my wedding ring," he is heard telling the paparazzo, before asking the man's name and adding: "I'm gonna step out the car and I'm gonna talk to you."

There is then a break in the recording and when it comes back Lamar is standing in the road holding the photographer's belongings.

The snapper asks the athlete to return the items, promoting Lamar to reply: "Shut up," before giving them back.

Lamar, 33, is also accused of smashing a car with a pipe during the dispute..

According to TMZ, one of the photographers involved has sought legal counsel.

Law enforcement sources tell the website the man plans to press charges.

Detectives are still believed to be investigating the incident.

"The case will most likely be forwarded to the L.A. City Attorney soon for criminal prosecution," the website reported.

The name of the photographer allegedly speaking with a lawyer has been withheld.

Khloé has stood in support of her husband despite rumours he cheated.

Star magazine claimed the athlete had entered into an affair with a 29-year-old woman named Jennifer Richardson.

The reality television star only addressed the photographers' alleged trespassing.

"wow can't believe a paparazzi snuck into our gated area and violated our private property!!!!" she tweeted.

"This is the same pap that did a hit and run but my brother and I caught him and he has the nerve to taunt us!!! Be ashamed of your self... F**k the papz!!!!! You f**king losers!!!!!

"This becomes stalking at some point!!!!! Its wild!!!! (sic)."

She also praised her husband for taking the time to pose with a fan just after the rampage.

Khloé and Lamar married in September 2009 after a whirlwind four-week courtship.
