Meghan Markle’s Nephew Finally Released From Hollywood Jail 4 Days After Arrest
As Meghan Markle made her very public royal tour in South Africa with Prince Harry, her nephew Thomas Dooley rotted in a Los Angeles jail for four long days after his shocking arrest.
But now, the 28-year-old Dominos franchise owner is finally free, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.
According to police records, Thomas — who was arrested on Thursday, September 26 after allegedly running through Hollywood with just a small towel wrapped around his waist — was released from the LAPD's Hollywood facility on September 30 at 6:05 pm.
Though his bail was set for $25,000, he was released on his own recognizance, meaning he did not have to pay up.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the troubled royal relative, who is the son of Meghan’s estranged half-brother Thomas Markle Jr., was arrested at 10 am on September 26 after allegedly causing chaos while under the influence of drugs.
It is believed Thomas’ younger brother Tyler – a weed farmer from Oregon who named his cannabis strain “Markle Sparkle” after his famous aunt – was also in Los Angeles around the time of the arrest.
Meghan, 38, has been estranged from the Markle side of her family ever since she married Harry in 2018.
Despite Thomas penning an open letter pleading with his aunt to make an exception and invite him to the Windsor Castle nuptials, she did not respond to his heartfelt request.
It’s not the first time this year that a Markle man has had a brush with the law.
In January, Thomas’ dad, Thomas Markle Jr., was busted driving while “visibly intoxicated” in Grants Pass, Oregon, where cops say his blood alcohol content was 0.11. He was sentenced to a diversion program.
Tyler was busted by bouncers trying to carry a large knife into a London nightclub during Meghan and Harry’s wedding. He was never charged with a crime in the incident.
