Meghan’s half-brother Thomas Markle jr. Was arrested on Friday because of driving under the influence. Markle was picked off the road at 1.33 am (local time) in the US state of Oregon, reports TMZ.

Thomas’ driving behavior stood out, after which the police stopped him for an alcohol test. It turned out “obvious” that Markle sat behind the wheel with a sip. Meghan’s half-brother, with whom the Duchess no longer has contact, was taken by the agents to a special shelter for people under the influence. His car has been confiscated.

Thomas was not present at the wedding of Meghan and Prince Harry in May. In fact, he warned the prince for his half-sister. “It’s not too late yet, Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you”, 52-year-old Markle wrote in a letter to the British royal.

Thomas also has wedding plans himself. In March he wants to give his yes to fiancée Darlene Blount and hopes that Meghan and Harry will also be at the party. Thomas previously said that he sees his wedding as the ideal opportunity to get the cold out of the air.
