LOS ANGELES - A Nevada sheriff's detective who obtained a search warrant the night Lamar Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel told a judge he believed the former NBA star overdosed on drugs including cocaine.

Court records obtained Thursday by The Associated Press reveal the warrant said prostitutes told police they believed Odom snorted cocaine in a bathroom while they were in the adjacent bedroom Oct. 13.

Brothel officials have told reporters that workers saw Odom drink alcohol and take supplements sold as "herbal Viagra," but no employees saw him take illegal drugs.

The judge authorized police to obtain a blood sample from Odom, who had by then been taken by ambulance to a Las Vegas hospital.

Odom's family said Thursday that he is improving as he undergoes therapy in Los Angeles.
