Bernard Tomic arrested after refusing to leave W South Beach room, police say
Miami Beach police say world's 25th-ranked tennis player ignored noise complaints
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – A professional tennis player was arrested early Wednesday morning for refusing to leave his South Beach hotel room after several noise complaints, police said.
Bernard Tomic, 22, faces charges of trespassing and resisting arrest without violence.
According to the Miami Beach police report, security guards at the W South Beach contacted Tomic three times after complaints from neighbors about loud noise and music coming from Tomic's penthouse.
Security guards said Tomic closed the door on them and refused to turn down the music, so they called police.
When police officers showed up at Tomic's door to evict him, they told him several times that he would be arrested if he didn't leave.
After all the guests left, Tomic "willfully remained in the room" and refused to leave, police said.
Tomic, who is ranked No. 25 in the world by the Association of Tennis Professionals, won the 2013 Apia International Sydney and the 2014 Claro Open Colombia. He also advanced to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon in 2011.
