Meghan Markle's meddlesome half-brother was busted early Friday on a drunken-driving charge in OR, according to reports.

According to TMZ, the 52-year-old's "impairment was obvious", and he "blew well over the legal limit", though it was not reported what number the breathalyzer actually recorded.

State police said Thomas Wayne Markle Jr. was visibly intoxicated when he was pulled over at about 1:30 a.m. Friday in Josephine County, in southwestern Oregon. Meghan on Thursday has become patron of the Smart Works charity that supports unemployed women to return to work.

Regardless, cops booked him in jail at the Grants Pass Sobering Center, and impounded his Chevy Silverado.

In a series of exclusive interviews conducted with Radar, Thomas Jr. opened up about their estrangement, claiming that his half-sister didn't even have the courtesy to call her ailing father after he suffered his heart attack just days before her royal wedding to Prince Harry.

He's got the potential to get up there. "He's got frightening pace, he's now become stronger and can hold the ball up for us". He is a fantastic goalscorer and one of the best in the world but I have got a couple that I am happy to work with.

He hoped that despite an estranged relationship between Meghan and his side of the family that his nuptials would bring them closer.

Meghan is not now in contact with her half-brother, father Thomas Markle Sr or half-sister Samantha Markle.

Meghan is the daughter of Thomas Markle Sr. and Doria Ragland.

Their sister, Samantha, said: "His drinking is not related to Meghan".
