MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic is facing resisting arrest charges after allegedly refusing to turn down loud music in his suite at a Miami Beach hotel.

Miami Beach police say officers responded Wednesday to the W South Beach Hotel after Tomic would not comply with requests from hotel security to lower the volume. The security personnel and police officers then told the 22-year-old Tomic he was being evicted, but he refused to leave.

Tomic stayed in the suite after being warned he was trespassing and was then arrested on misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest without violence and trespassing. Court and jail records did not list an attorney for Tomic.
