Police in Oregon have said the nephew of Meghan Markle was injured in a bar fight two days before the Duchess of Sussex gave birth to Baby Sussex.
Tyler Dooley, 26, was ‘shoved to the ground’ in a fist-fight at the Wonder Bur Lounge that involved ’15-20 people,’ Grants Pass Police Department told The Sun.
Dooley, who is the son of Meghan’s half-brother, 52-year-old Thomas Markle Jr, was not accused of any wrongdoing in the fray, and said the police description was ‘not entirely accurate.’
‘I’m not a victim,’ Dooley said. ‘The disturbance is completely separate from me.’
The son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was born just over 48 hours later, at 5.26am local time in England, weighing seven pounds, three ounces.

Police in Oregon have said Tyler Dooley (pictured), the 26-year-old nephew of Meghan Markle, was injured in a bar fight in front of the Wonder Bur Lounge
Police were called to the area in front of the lounge at around 11.15pm on Friday.
The ‘large fight,’ as officers described it, had dispersed before they came on the scene.
‘Suspects were unknown and (Mr) Dooley was shoved to the ground,’ police said.
Dooley, who is a cannabis farmer and starred on the MTV reality shot, ‘The Royal World,’ confirmed he had injured his leg but said that it was not ‘during a fight.’
Two days later, on May 6, Prince Harry and Meghan welcomed Baby Sussex.

Just under one year ago, Dooley made headlines when he was found to have a knife on his person at a London nightclub the night of Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding, on May 19.
‘It was a complete accident,’ Dooley said at the time. I’m a hunter and a fisherman, so I carry the knife around with me at home. I had no idea it was in my trousers when I was in London.’
The knife was found on him on May 19 at Bacchus nightclub.

‘We were in line at the club and everyone was getting searched,’ Dooley said.
‘I felt around and realized the knife was in my pocket, so I asked the security guy if he could hang onto it for me. He looked at me like I was crazy – like I had just committed murder!
‘In the States I have a handgun on me every single day. It is normal – we live in the country.’
Dooley created a special strain of marijuana to commemorate Meghan’s wedding, called ‘Markle’s Sparkle,’ which he announced in April of 2018.
