Meghan Markle has become an internationally recognized household name since she married into royalty. Duchess Meghan and her American family have continued to make headlines for constantly feuding with the royal family, their traditions and Meghan herself. Now, Duchess Meghan’s family is again embarrassing the crown as media reports surface that Meghan’s half-brother has been arrested for driving under the influence.
Thomas Markle Jr., the 52-year-old brother of Duchess Meghan, was taken into police custody at around 1:30 A.M. on January 11th. He was initially pulled over by police when he appeared to be swerving in the road. Officers initiated a field sobriety test because the suspect’s intoxication was “obvious.” He was then given a breathalyzer test where he blew a .11 percent. The legal limit is .08 percent.
Thomas Markle Jr. was then taken to the Grants Pass Sobering Center, and his vehicle was taken to the impound lot.
Back in April, Thomas made headline news when he allegedly sent Prince Harry a letter exclaiming, “It’s not too late. Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you.” He was also arrested back in January of 2017 when he got too intoxicated and fought with his girlfriend. Thomas allegedly threatened his girlfriend with a firearm. In July of 2018, Thomas got into a physical fight while intoxicated. The other person, who was also the same girlfriend from the prior incident, ended up giving Thomas a black eye and was arrested for assault. The couple later told media outlets that they were going to stop drinking alcohol because it was causing problems in the relationship.
