The former U.S. Navy SEAL who has publicly claimed he was the man who shot and killed Osama bin Laden in 2011 was arrested last week after he allegedly got “belligerent” drunk inside of a Texas hotel and assaulted a security guard while also calling him a racial slur. Robert O’Neill was taken into custody on Wednesday and charged with one count of assault causing bodily injury and one count of public intoxication, court records reviewed by Law&Crime show.

According to an arrest report, officers with the Frisco Police Department at about midnight on Wednesday, Aug. 23 responded to a call regarding a disturbance at the Omni Hotel located at 11 Cowboys Way in Collins County. Upon arriving at the scene, police spoke with the front desk attendant who placed the call and the security guard who was allegedly attacked. They were advised that O’Neill had stuck the guard in the chest and was still in the hallway outside of his room where the assault allegedly took place.

Officers then proceeded to the fifth floor of the hotel where they encountered O’Neill.

[O’Neill] had a pronounced sway and looked incredibly unstable on his feet. [O’Neill] had a strong odor of alcoholic beverage emitting from his body as well as red glassy eyes,” the arrest report states. “Corporal Anderson observed that [O’Neill] was holding a silver in color credit card in his hand. [O’Neill] pressed the card against the lock trying to open the room. Corporal Anderson attempted to talk to [O’Neill] about what happened tonight. [O’Neill] refused to answer questions and kept repeating ‘we good?’”

Officers then placed O’Neill under arrest.
