Bernard Tomic will have to go to court to deal with two traffic offenses that caused a stir during Australia Day last week, the Australian press reports. The 19-year-old was fined twice in the space of an hour for driving his BMW M3 on Australia’s Gold Coast, but refused to stop when asked to pull over a third time.
Tomic then drove home, went inside and had a three-hour standoff with the police. Tomic has a special exemption allowing him to drive his V8 car for reasons 'pertaining to his career' but is not allowed to drive it for other reasons. He claims officers are picking him on because of his European background.
