AceShowbiz – British royal the Duchess of Sussex’s half-brother has been arrested in Oregon.
Thomas Markle Jr. was taken into custody on Friday morning (January 11) for driving under the influence of alcohol, according to TMZ.
The 52-year-old was pulled over by an Oregon State Police trooper, who asked Markle to perform a field sobriety test.
Reports suggest he was visibly intoxicated and blew well over the legal limit.
Thomas, the son of Meghan Markle‘s father, was taken to the Grants Pass Sobering Center.
He and his sister Samantha, and their father, have been constant embarrassments for the new royal, who wed Prince Harry last May (2018), often talking to the press to discredit the former actress.
Thomas, who is estranged from his half-sister, Meghan, sent a letter to Prince Harry a month before the wedding and urged him not to marry the former “Suits” star, writing, “It’s not too late. Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you.”
He embarrassed the family in early January 2017, when he was arrested after allegedly holding a gun to his girlfriend’s head during a fight.
