The former U.S. Navy SEAL who claimed he killed Osama bin Laden in his 2017 tell-all book has been arrested for assault in the Dallas suburb of Frisco in Texas.
Rob O’Neill, 47, faces misdemeanour charges of assault causing bodily injury and public intoxication, a spokesperson for the Frisco Police Department told The Dallas Morning News.
The news was confirmed by KDFW.
He was arrested Wednesday, booked into the Collin County Jail, and released on a $3,500 bond the same day, the newspaper reported.
O’Neill, a resident of Tennessee, was in Texas to record a podcast at a cigar lounge, social media posts showed.
The former soldier first alleged he killed bin Laden in an interview with the Washington Post in 2014, three years after the 2011 mission.
