Nick Kyrgios Aids Police in Capturing Suspect in Tesla Theft

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation said on Tuesday that tennis player Nick Kyrgios assisted police in apprehending a guy who is accused of stealing a Tesla at gunpoint from a residence in Australia's capital city.

The 2022 Wimbledon finalist used the Tesla app to follow and slow down the car while police chased it on Monday morning in Canberra, according to court records, according to the ABC.


According to documentation from court hearings on Tuesday, a guy allegedly flashed a pistol at Norlaila Kyrgios, Kyrgios' mother, demanded the vehicle keys, and then asked her how to operate it, according to the ABC. She ran away and yelled for assistance as soon as he got inside the vehicle. Being close, Kyrgios called a police emergency line and assisted with car tracking.

A guy was quickly taken into custody with assistance from a police tactical response team after the police chase came to a halt when the automobile entered a school zone.

Following his appearance in the Australian Capital Territory Magistrates Court on five charges associated with the incident, including aggravated robbery, operating a stolen vehicle, erratic driving, and failing to stop for police, a 32-year-old man was denied bail.

While Kyrgios made it to the Wimbledon final and the U.S. Open quarterfinals last year, he hasn't participated in a high-level match since pulling out of a tournament in Japan last October due to a left knee injury.

The 28-year-old Australian is now ranked No. 13, which is a career high.
