Meghan Markle’s half-naked nephew arrested ‘walking streets while high on drugs’
Thomas Dooley – the son of Meghan’s half-brother Thomas Markle Jr – was wearing only a towel and ‘shouting gibberish’ in the streets of Hollywood, according to US media
Meghan Markle’s nephew was arrested after allegedly being found wandering the Hollywood streets wearing only a towel.
Thomas Dooley, the son of the Duchess of Sussex’s half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr, was arrested on a felony charge on Thursday, according to US media.
Passersby told police that Mr Dooley was walking down a street while shouting gibberish, according to police sources.
The 28-year-old is said to have been seen wearing only a small towel wrapped around his waist.
When officers approached him, he reportedly attempted to evade capture, eventually being forced to the ground and subdued, TMZ reports.
Under normal circumstances, Mr Dooley would have been charged with a misdemeanor.
But because an officer injured his knee during the arrest, it was “bumped up” to felony resisting arrest.
Mr Dooley was said to have been under the influence of drugs at the time of his arrest – although nothing is known of the type of drug, TMZ reported.
Mr Dooley’s brother, Tyler, operates a cannabis farm and business.
Launching in 2018 with a potent strain of weed called ‘Markle Sparkle’, he has recently developed a hybrid cannabis strain called ‘Archie Sparkie’, reportedly named after the Duke and Duchess’s son, Archie .
Mr Dooley is currently being held on $25,000 bail, according to jail records.
