A spokesperson for the Oregon State Police confirmed the news in a statement to Entertainment Tonight: "We arrested a Thomas Wayne Markle around 1:30 a.m. on Highway 238 near mile post 1 in Josephine County".

Thomas Markle Jr, 52, was stopped by authorities in OR at 1:33am on Friday morning, according to TMZ.

The Associated Press claims Thomas Wayne Markle Jr was "visibly intoxicated" when pulled over in his auto at 1.30am on Friday morning - and was taken directly to a "detox centre". Meghan on Thursday has become patron of the Smart Works charity that supports unemployed women to return to work.


TMZ stated that the 52-year-old was stopped by police at 1:33 AM in OR and taken into custody for impaired driving.

He was given a field sobriety test and blew "well over the legal limit" in a breath test. Who would want all these self destructive people in their life when trying to have children or while raising them??? His blood alcohol content was.11 per cent.

Her flurry of commitments come after Vanity Fair reported the duchess asked her aides to "fill her diary right up to her due date" and that she plans to carry out even more engagements over the next few months. Thomas Sr., who often makes headlines for speaking out about his famous daughter, is also the father of Thomas Jr. and 54-year-old Samantha. But she must be wondering what her new in-laws make of all these stories.
