Bernard Tomic arrested in Miami Beach over hotel music

Thursday July 16th, 2015

Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic was arrested in Miami Beach on Wednesday over alleged loud hotel music, according to the Associated Press.

According to the AP, Tomic was charged with trespassing and resisting arrest without violence, both misdemeanors. Miami Beach police said Tomic did not cooperate with requests to lower the volume of loud music in his hotel suite, then refused to leave after being told he was being evicted. 

Tomic was allegedly told he was trespassing but stayed in the suite, leading to the arrest. 

Tomic, 22, recently lost to Novak Djokovic in the third round at Wimbledon. After the loss, Tomic criticized Tennis Australia for its lack of support for his career and was subsequently suspended from Australia's home Davis Cup quarterfinal against Kazakhstan.
