Police file drunken driving charges against former Navy SEAL who says he killed Osama bin Laden

Police in the US state of Montana filed drunken driving charges against the former Navy SEAL who says he fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden.

Butte-Silver Bow County Undersheriff George Skuletich says officers found Robert O’Neill asleep early this in a running car parked at a shop in his hometown of Butte.

Skuletich says the 39-year-old O’Neill was confused and appeared to be intoxicated when officers woke him up.

The officers took him to jail after he failed a field sobriety test. They charged him when he refused a breathalyser test. He was released after posting a $685 (€600) bond.

A phone number listed for O’Neill was disconnected. It’s not clear whether he had hired an attorney.

O’Neill began publicly discussing his role in the 2011 bin Laden raid two years ago.
