Lamar Odom could face drug charges after testing positive to having cocaine in his system the day he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.

“The Nye County Sheriff’s Office has now asked the Nye County District Attorney’s Office to review a request for prosecution against Lamar Odom for Use of, or Under the Influence of, a Controlled Substance,” Nye County District Attorney Angela A. Bello tells PEOPLE in a statement. “The D.A.’s office will take the time needed to appropriately review that request, along with all evidence that might support that request, in order to reach a just conclusion regarding whether to advance charges. ”

Odom was rushed to the hospital Oct. 13, and hours later, law enforcement officials traveled to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas to take a sample of his blood to use for a toxicology test. On 911 tapes released from the incident, a man can be heard saying Odom had used cocaine.

Odom, 36, is currently being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center In Los Angeles. He has battled addiction issues in the past.
