'Girls Gone Wild' Producer Arrested for Assault in California

The notorious and now bankrupt producer Joe Francis, 41, and former owner of the widely-known “Girls Gone Wild” videos was arrested on Friday evening on a misdemeanor assault charge when push literally came to shove with an employee at the previous location of his production company on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, according to CBS Los Angeles.

Francis was allegedly blocked while attempting to either retrieve or take photographs of personal property at the office and was blocked from entering, which is when the scuffle ensued, according to CBS.

The employee with whom the brouhaha occurred was not injured. Francis was reportedly there in defiance of a “say away” order issued by the Federal Bankruptcy Court and spent the night in jail but was released Saturday morning on $20,000 bail.

Last year, Francis was sentenced to 270 days in jail and three years’ probation for choking a woman and repeatedly slamming her head into the ground at his Los Angeles mansion in 2011, according to the Associated Press. One day after his conviction, Francis told the Hollywood Reporter that members of the jury which convicted him were “retarded” and that “they should all be lined up and shot.” He later apologized.
