The former Navy SEAL who claims to have killed Osama bin Laden was arrested in Texas this week.
Robert J. O’Neill, 47, was booked Wednesday in Frisco and slapped with a Class A misdemeanor charge of assault causing bodily injury and a Class C misdemeanor charge of public intoxication, although jail records listed only the assault charge, The Dallas Morning News reported.
Frisco police declined to release more information Friday about the arrest.
O’Neill was released the same day on a $3,500 bond.
O’Neill had been in town to record a podcast at a local cigar lounge.
He did not respond to a request for comment from The Post.
A former SEAL Team 6 member, O’Neill came to wide public prominence after he took credit for firing the shots that killed 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden during a covert raid in 2011.
O’Neill recounted the story in his 2017 memoir “The Operator.”
The United States government has never confirmed or denied the story.
O’Neill’s Texas bust is far from his first run-in with controversy.
