Joe Francis -- Held Up in Hotlanta!

It looks like Joe Francis might be making more stops getting back to Nevada to face tax evasion charges than a "Girls Gone Wild" bus in south Florida during spring break.

TMZ has learned that the porntrepreneur is currently being held in a United States Penitentiary in Atlanta, and that he'll be there for an unspecified amount of time.

Early yesterday, Francis was sprung by U.S. Marshals from a county jail in Jackson County, Fla., and was transported by bus to the Peach State, where he'll await another bus -- or the so-called "Con Air" plane service -- to get back to Reno.
