Montana police have charged the former Navy SEAL who claims he killed Osama bin Laden with drunken driving.

Butte-Silver Bow County Undersheriff George Skuletich said officers found Robert O’Neill asleep early Friday morning in a running car parked outside a convenience store in Butte, The Associated Press reported.

Undersheriff Skuletich said Mr. O’Neill, 39, was confused and appeared to be intoxicated when officers wore him up.

Mr. O’Neill failed an on-site sobriety test and was taken to jail where he refused a breathalyzer test. He was released after posting a $685 bond, AP reported.

In 2011, Mr. O’Neill publicly claimed that he had fired the shots that killed the al Qaeda leader during a SEAL team 6 raid in Pakistan.
