Meghan Markle's Half-Brother Arrested for DUI

Meghan Markle's brother Thomas Markle Jr arrested for 'drink driving'

Meghan Markle's meddlesome half-brother was busted early Friday on a drunken-driving charge in OR, according to reports.

Thomas, who is estranged from the Duchess of Sussex and has had a long history of run-ins with the law, reportedly failed a sobriety test, and was visibly drunk.

The 52-year-old was driving by Oregon State Police when police stopped him at 1:33 AM and took him into custody for impaired driving. Meghan on Thursday has become patron of the Smart Works charity that supports unemployed women to return to work. "His BAC [Blood Alcohol content] was.11 percent, .08 is the legal limit", Captain Tim Fox said.

Markle's Chevy Silverado pick-up truck was impounded and he was taken to the Grants Pass Sobering Center to burn off the booze, TMZ said.

In January 2017, Thomas was arrested following a drunken row with his girlfriend, in which he threatened her with a gun.

But later in the year he stated that he hoped his own upcoming nuptials in either Reno or nearby Las Vegas, Nevada, might help to heal the family feud.

Mr Markle Jr's sister, Samantha, also added: "His drinking is not related to Meghan".

Thomas Markle Sr. said in a television interview last month he had not heard from her since the wedding.

Meghan's brother famously wrote an open letter to Prince Harry before the royal wedding to tell him "It's not too late".
