Meghan Markle's Half-Brother Arrested for DUI - 3 Days After Announcing His Engagement

Meghan Markle's half brother Thomas Markle Jr has reportedly been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.

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.

The publication reports that he then performed a sobriety test, which caused officers to say his impairment was "obvious". He was then sent to a detox center so he could "sober up" and be released.

It was a big week for Megan Markle as her first patronages were announced by Kensington Palace.

Meghan visited one of the organisations that morning, Smart Works, a charity which helps long-term unemployed and vulnerable women regain the skills, confidence and tools to succeed at job interviews so they can return to employment.


Following the news, Thomas' father Thomas Sr., told TMZ that his "son has a serious problem and he needs help, and I hope he gets it".

While William and Kate have three children: Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three and eight-month-old Prince Louis, Meghan and Harry were not chosen to be godparents for any of their nieces or nephews.

The arrival of Baby Sussex is quickly approaching, and Prince Harry and Meghan are kicking it into high gear searching for a hospital and the flawless nanny!
