Tomic in dangerous driving investigation
RISING tennis star Bernard Tomic, who has a fondness for luxury sports cars, is under police investigation after a string of dangerous driving complaints.
Police sources said the distinctive bright orange BMW M3 was reported for "hooning offences".
The 19-year-old was intercepted by police in Elkorn Ave, Surfers Paradise, on Sunday night. No tickets were issued but the investigation is ongoing.
Tomic is still on his P-plate licence and had to apply for a special exemption to drive the eight-cylinder luxury sports car, worth an estimated $150,000. The exemption was granted for him to drive directly to and from tennis training at the Queen St courts, Southport.
Police will now investigate the tennis star for the dangerous driving allegations and for breaching the special conditions of his licence.
