Bernard Tomic was reportedly involved with a standoff with police after a dispute over his driving in Australia.

Australian tennis star Bernard Tomic is reportedly involved in a standoff at his home with police after a tense situation involving his driving. Tomic, who is allowed to drive his sports car to and from training, has reportedly been pulled over multiple times, and after police tried to pull him over on Thursday in Australia he retreated to his home claiming bias. Police were able to enter the home, ESPN said, but Tomic is threatening to file a bias claim after he says law enforcement has been targeting his vehicle.

It should be noted that Tomic's car, a tricked-out orange BMW, is well-known in Australian and incredibly recognizable. Tomic was pulled over once on Thursday morning, then as police attempted to pull him over again later, he fled.

Tomic's father is unhappy with the actions of police, The Courier Mail reports.

They have been accused of 'un-Australian' actions by Tomic's father John, who had an angry confrontation with officers in his driveway.

Tomic was already under investigation for allegedly breaching conditions of his licence allowing him to drive the BMW only to and from training.

Never a dull moment, apparently.
