(UnitedVoice.com) – Former Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill was a member of SEAL Team 6 when they carried out the mission to kill 9/11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden in 2011. He rose to fame after admitting that he fired the shot to kill the most hated terrorist in the world. He was recently arrested in Texas.
On August 23, O’Neill stayed at the Omni at The Star, a hotel next to the Dallas Cowboys headquarters in Frisco. According to the Frisco Police Department, he allegedly drank too much and passed out at the hotel bar. A security guard attempted to help him to his room, but the guard said the ex-SEAL hit him in the chest and called him a “fu**ing [n-word]” while striking him.
The guard said he told O’Neill that he couldn’t believe he’d hit him. At that point, the ex-service member allegedly repeated the racial slur. Law enforcement arrived and confronted him. Officers reported he had a silver credit card in his hand and was repeatedly swiping it in the lock, trying to get the door opened to his room. When the police asked him what was wrong, he reportedly said, “We good.” In their report, the responding officers noted that he “had a strong odor of alcoholic beverage emitting from his body as well as red glassy eyes.”
Officers arrested O’Neill and charged him with misdemeanor public intoxication and misdemeanor assault causing bodily injury. He later tweeted to, “categorically deny ever using this horrible language recently reported.”
The incident in Texas isn’t the first time O’Neill has been in trouble in recent years. In 2016, Montana police arrested him for drinking and driving. Prosecutors dropped those charges. In 2020, Delta Airlines banned him from taking his mask off during a flight.
O’Neill has already bonded out of jail. He celebrated his wedding anniversary days after his arrest.
