Bernard Tomic’s dad caught drink driving on the Gold Coast

The father of Gold Coast’s tennis bad boy Bernard Tomic has reportedly been caught drink driving on the Gold Coast.

According to Channel 7, John Tomic was reportedly on his way home from SeaFire on Saturday night, when he blew over the blood alcohol limit on Ferry Road.

It was a low range level, though he was taken back to the Surfers Paradise Police Station and charged.


It’s not John’s first brush with the law, he copped a suspended jail sentence six years ago for head butting one of his son’s tennis partners.

He’ll reportedly front Southport Magistrates court on drink driving charges later this month.

Police haven’t been able to confirm the reports.

It comes as his son, Bernard Tomic, is accused of throwing his French Open tournament.
