Belgrade, Serbia - Novak Djokovic is in jail and waiting to see a judge. He was arrested yesterday. The charge? Forging a document. The maximum penalty for such a crime in this country nestled in the Balkans is 20 years.
The incident occurred when the 34-year-old tennis star entered a Subway and ordered himself a 6 inch meatball sub. All was going well until it was time for him to pay. He pulled out a buy 9 get the 10th one free card. The cashier studied the card and then called on the manager. It was an obvious fake.
Andrew Kanard is the general manager for that Subway. He's seen many, many forged cards over the years. "This is a big problem," he said. "A lot of people abuse the system and refuse to take responsibility for their actions when they did something wrong."
Eyewitnesses report that the number 1 ranked tennis star in the world insisted the card was good. When confronted that the item didn't have the right stamps on it (to signify he had actually ordered the subs in the past), he simply said his coach made a mistake. Djokovic then insisted it wasn't his fault and that he needed that 6-inch meatball sub.
"He wasn't getting that sub for free. He made such a stink about it, I banned him for three years," Manager Kanard said.
It was then an agitated Djokovic really flew off the handle. Well, it was his tennis racket actually. The tennis pro launched it into the display of chips. Many chips were ruined. It was then the police became involved. He was arrested for disturbing the peace and forging a Subway extra value card.
However, his fans are supporting him. It doesn't seem to matter what he does.
