Found Unconscious At The Brothel (Love Ranch)
Hof said Odom called him Saturday and told him he wanted to visit the brothel for a few days. Hof let him stay at his home, which is attached to the brothel.
"He was having a good time at the ranch and everything was great," Hof said, until Sunday, when Odom seemed "a bit somber" because people were "calling and bothering him."
"They immediately call 911, and dispatch tells the girls to roll him over on his left side and (he) starts to puke.
He was totally unconscious. The girls and staff rush him out on the ambulance. The police didn't find any illegal drugs on him."

He added, "To my knowledge, there were no drugs involved. Lamar was eating well and was just healthy."
Brothels are legal in Nevada in counties with fewer than 700,000 people, according to state law.
After the brothel called 911, Odom was rushed to a nearby hospital and then taken by ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas because he was too tall to fit in a helicopter, Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly said.
The hospital did not release any information about Odom's condition.
Relatives and former teammates of Odom — who won NBA championships with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2009 and 2010 — were pulling for him to recover.
