If you, the average American, had taken a prescription to assist you with your sleep deprivation then you were found asleep behind the wheel with your car running, would you be convicted of driving under the influence? I would venture to guess you are shaking your head “yes” right about now. Well that may not be the case, at least for everyone.
Former Navy Seal team member Rob O'Neill found himself in the exact situation; however, he was able to convince the prosecution to change the charges to a lesser offense. “Butte-Silver Bow County prosecutors instead charged O'Neill with negligent endangerment and deferred prosecution for up to a year while he undergoes treatment through the Department of Veterans Affairs.”
Granted, if preferential treatment should be given, who better to give it to than the man who claims he shot Osama bin Laden.
