he's a bit of a punk don't get me wrong, i just think the whole situation seems a bit sketchy
i think it's because it's Australia day. national public holiday. many people on the gold coast. pressures from all sorts of directions.

What are the police meant to do? Just walk away and let him continue to drive the thing illegally. There is a reason why Australia has these laws and the Gold Coast is one of the main problem areas. If it was anyone else they would be getting the same treatment.

Normally when someone decides to leave the cops and drive home over an issue like it means they have something else to hide and the fact that he was having fun with his mates on Australia Day beforehand doesn't exactly help. You normally get a few stories a year of our footballers (not soccer version but our bogan versions) who run from the cops. Ben Cousins (a former AFL player) was one of the few successful ones who managed to get away with a drugs possession charge by fleeing his car at a police pullover and then chucking his drugs in the river but in the end his drug addiction caught up with him. It's one of the oldest bogan tricks in the book.

I highly doubt Tomic had something to hide and he probably panicked but you can't blame the police for doing what they did. It is Tomic's fault things escalated. The police are simply doing their job.

I've never liked his cocky attitude, but I have to admit, this guy is a great person.

Re: Police camped outside Tomic's house...

I don't understand, why does he need a special license? How old do you have to be to drive in Australia? And why was he only allowed to drive to and from practice only?

Re: Police camped outside Tomic's house...

Any colour other than orange wouldn't have been right for this kid.

Anyhow, tough luck tomic.

Once you actually learn to drive this thing it'll be a lot harder to pull you over.
