Joe Francis, the founder of the “Girls Gone Wild” video empire has a $500,000 warrant out for his arrest.
The city attorney’s office said the arrest warrant was issued for multiple reasons, including that he is living in another country and “has no ties to this community.”
Francis is facing seven charges stemming from an alleged altercation in May when he was at “Girls Gone Wild” headquarters, said Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the city attorney’s office. The incident involved “pushing and shoving” and Francis spent the night in jail.
Francis, 41, was accused of multiple counts of making criminal threats, trespassing, battery and disobeying a court, Mateljan said.
