AUSTRALIAN tennis player Bernard Tomic has been arrested in Miami after allegedly refusing to leave his hotel room after a wild party.
According to TMZ, The Gold Coaster was staying at the luxurious W Hotel when noise complaints from other guests saw security visit the 22-year-old’s penthouse suite at around 5.30am.

Tomic, who had friends in the penthouse, “pointed his finger aggressively towards the hotel security officers and continued to play loud music”, according to the police report.
It is alleged everyone except Tomic left the room, so police arrested him and forced him to leave.
Tomic was arrested, handcuffed and transported to Miami’s Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.
He was later released on US$20,000 (A$26,900) bail.
It continues a tumultuous fortnight for Tomic, who was kicked off Australia’s Davis Cup team for a tirade against Tennis Australia at Wimbledon and was knocked out in the first round of the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in Rhode Island on Monday.
