Meghan Markle’s brother Thomas Markle Jr arrested for ‘drink driving’

Meghan Markle’s half brother Thomas Markle Jr has reportedly been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.

TMZ stated that the 52-year-old was stopped by police at 1:33 AM in Oregon and taken into custody for impaired driving.

He was described as being visibly intoxicated and well over the legal limit, the site claims.

The publication reports that he then performed a sobriety test, which caused officers to say his impairment was ‘obvious’.

Markle Jr, who shares a father with the Duchess of Sussex, was reportedly then taken to the Grants Pass Sobering Centre, while his Chevy Silverado was impounded.

Meghan is not currently in contact with her half-brother, father Thomas Markle Sr or half-sister Samantha Markle.

Last year Markle Jr sent Prince Harry a letter before he married the former Suits actress, telling him: ‘It’s not too late. Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you.’

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.

Markle Jr reportedly said he thought his own big day would help bring them all ‘closer together’, despite not receiving an invite to the royal wedding.

‘My son has a serious problem and he needs help, and I hope he gets it,’ Mr Markle Sr told TMZ.

While his sister said: ‘His drinking is not related to Meghan. He always drank.’
