Australia’s Pro Tennis Star Tomic Apologises after Arrest in Miami

Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic has apologised after being charged with trespassing and resisting arrest by Miami Beach Police.

Tomic was accused to have had an altercation with staff and police and refused to leave his hotel room after other residents complained over loud music from their penthouse party on Wednesday.

“I’m sorry for the disturbance I caused,” Tomic told local television. “I’m just happy I got out and no one got hurt.”

It is said that the 22-year-old disobeyed officers- refusing to turn down the volume of the music and, even slammed the door in the guards faces- who arrived at the W Hotel venue in South Beach to dispatch the party goers.

The player ranked No. 25 by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) was released on Wednesday, according to jail officials.

Tomic told CBS4: “It was definitely my fault. I was asleep on several occasions when they complained at first, but you know, it was just a noise complaint.”

Tomic was omitted from Australia’s Davis Cup quarter-final squad to face Kazakhstan this weekend after a scathing rant with team officials following his third round exit at Wimbledon.
