The father of tennis bad boy Bernard Tomic was arrested after allegedly caught drunk driving.

Officers conducted the on-site breath test, with Mr. Tomic recovering a positive value for the low range that was just above the legal limit of 0.05.

He was then taken to the Surfers Paradise police station and charged with one count of drunk driving.

Mr. Tomic is expected to appear on the Southport Magistrates Court on June 20.

This is not the first time that Mr. Tomic has broken into the law.

Six years ago, he was sentenced to jail after running into his son & # 39; s tennis partner Thomas Drouet.

The French professional player was supposed to be left with a broken nose and required stitches after the altercation.

Mr. Tomic's 26-year-old son was fined and received a 12-month-long good-behavior band after he could not stop the police in 2012.

Bernard also had his driver's license revoked after he was caught speeding up the Gold Coast in 2013.
