Half-Brother of Meghan Markle Arrested on DUI Charge

Half-Brother of Meghan Markle Arrested on DUI Charge

Meghan Markle's half-brother Thomas Markle Jr. is making headlines again, but this time it isn't for their family feud.

State police said Thomas Wayne Markle Jr. was visibly intoxicated when he was pulled over at about 1:30 a.m. Friday in Josephine County, in southwestern Oregon. "His BAC [Blood Alcohol content] was.11 percent, .08 is the legal limit", Captain Tim Fox said. Smart Works is "a United Kingdom charity that provides high quality interview clothes and interview training to unemployed women in need". He told DailyMail TV that Harry and Meghan are welcome at his March wedding to fiancée Darlene Blount, who he's been with for two years.

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.

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


"They say his impairment was obvious", the outlet reported.

Days before the wedding, Mr Markle urged Prince Harry to cancel his wedding, claiming it would be the "biggest mistake in royal wedding history".

The father-of-three, who is not in touch with Meghan's mother Doria Ragland, did not attend his daughter's wedding as he was recovering from heart surgery. Thomas Jr.'s sister Samantha added that her brother's "drinking is not related to Meghan".
