Michael Driscoll is a character in L.A. Noire. He is a person of interest in "Manifest Destiny".



Driscoll was a member the Sixth Marines, having fought in the Okinawa campaign alongside Lieutenant Cole Phelps and Sergeant Jack Kelso as a rifleman. On their way home from the war, Driscoll and his fellow Marines were shipped on board the SS Coolridge. They reflected on their unsatisfactory jobs to return home to, prompting Courtney Sheldon convincing everyone to stealing the cargo of army surplus morphine with the intent to sell on the streets. With the exception of Kelso, they committed the theft, stealing half a million syrettes.

Upon returning to Los Angeles, Sheldon established a business arrangement with the Cohen Crime Syndicate, in order to sell the morphine to abortion clinics and hospitals. Driscoll and Walter Beckett assisted Sheldon by transporting the morphine to the Polar Bear Ice Company.

Events of L.A. Noire

However, there was a feud between Mickey Cohen and Sheldon. Cohen instead started selling the morphine to the addicted, gaining a considerable advantage on the city's drug trade, since the morphine required no preparation. Sheldon, realizing this, pulled out of the deal with Cohen. Cohen retaliated by ordering the assassinations of the Marines involved in the morphine heist. Five gunmen were sent to a post office, where Driscoll and Beckett were located. Detectives Phelps, Earle and the LAPD arrived immediately. All five gunmen were killed in the resulting exchange of fire, however both Beckett and Driscoll were killed by their assassins.
