Meghan Markle's half-brother arrested for drunk driving lailasnews

Meghan Markle's estranged half-brother Thomas Markle Jr. was arrested for a DUI on Friday, Fox News can confirm.

Thomas Markle Jr. - who tried to prevent Meghan's marriage to Britain's Prince Harry - was stopped by state police around 1:30 a.m., according to TMZ.

He was given a field sobriety test and blew "well over the legal limit" in a breath test.

Markle, who is the son of Meghan's father Thomas Sr., was then taken to the Grants Pass Sobering Center, while his Chevy Silverado was seized.


In a series of exclusive interviews conducted with Radar, Thomas Jr. opened up about their estrangement, claiming that his half-sister didn't even have the courtesy to call her ailing father after he suffered his heart attack just days before her royal wedding to Prince Harry. Smart Works is "a United Kingdom charity that provides high quality interview clothes and interview training to unemployed women in need".

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. "It's hopeful that if Meghan and Harry came and my father, Meghan and Harry could spend some time together with him and that would be good".

While his sister said: 'His drinking is not related to Meghan.
