Bernard Tomic arrested after fracas with police

World no 25 tennis player Bernard Tomic was arrested at his W South Beach hotel room in Miami for trespassing and resisting arrest.

The Australian tennis player, who was kicked out of Australia’s Davis Cup team at Wimbledon after he berated Tennis Australia, reportedly blasted loud music and refused to turn down the volume despite being told to do so by hotel security after hotel guests complained.

Hotel security went to his penthouse three times to plead with him to soften the music but with no avail. While the Miami Beach Police said that he “pointed his finger aggressively towards hotel security” which lead to the Miami Beach Police involvement.

“Remaining guests in the room left and the defendant wilfully remained in the room refusing to comply,” according to police reports.

“Defendant was verbally warned again that he was being evicted and was no longer allowed to be in the hotel.

“Defendant once again verbally and physically refused to comply with officer demands.”

Police gave him several warnings to leave or he would be charged and arrested. His guests in his room duly left but his refusal to leave despite warnings by the police left the police with no option but to arrest him.

He was taken to Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, where he took a mugshot and was put behind bars.

However, his stint behind bars did not last long as he was released on a $2,000 bail.
