Jenner/Francis in Knock Down Bar Fight, Tased

8/28/2009 8:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brody Jenner was in an epic fight outside of Guys and Dolls this morning, with Girls Gone Wild honcho Joe Francis.

Jenner just spoke with us by phone. According to Jenner, he and his girlfriend, Jayde Nicole, were at the club celebrating his birthday, when Jayde saw Francis hitting on an ex-girlfriend of his (Francis'), Jenner says "unrelentingly." Jayde felt he was harassing the woman -- whom Jayde and Brody know -- and she threw a drink on Francis.

Jenner says Francis then pulled Jayde's hair, punched her in the face and threw her to the ground and began kicking her. Security broke it up and Francis got dragged away -- Brody followed.

Jenner says he started yelling at Francis and both men were ejected from the club.

Outside the club, Jenner says he tried to get back in to see Jayde but security wouldn't let him. Jenner then saw Joe, punched him in the face, and then someone tased him and he fell to the ground.

Francis left the scene (shown below). The cops -- who say a call came in at 2:46 AM for battery -- came but no one was arrested.

Joe Francis

Jayde tells TMZ she will press charges against Francis.

Jayde has a black and blue cheek, her face is swollen, she has a bruised left rib and her lower abdomen is sore. Some of her hair also got pulled out.

UPDATE: Brody put the following message on his Twitter: "Joe Francis beat up my lady this morning for no reason! Pulled her to the ground, punched & kicked her..what does that say about him. How can you call yourself a man when you beat up a girl?? Joe Francis is a piece of sh*t. Joe Francis needs to be in jail!!!"

UPDATE: A rep for the club tells us, "It is Guys and Dolls policy not to comment on incidents that are being handled by the police department. We trust that this situation will be resolved both swiftly and privately."

I think he should've open hand slapped that silly down syndrome faced jenner GF instead of a balled fist...followed by kicking on the ground. You've to be smarter than that, yes she deserved every bit of that punch to the face for throwing a drink on him, but he shouldn't have punched her like she was a man.

This is the problem with women, they just assume they can get away with anything b/c they're a girl/female...then reality catches up and you have a shiner under your eye socket.

Hitting a girl for any reason should never be tolerated! However if I had a daughter, I would teach her not to hit a guy and many other irresponsible actions to better her social life. I'd teach her lessons on how to keep her safe from any harm including self-destructive solutions to problems.

I raised a son and hopefully he knows to make the right choices in life.

Drinking or drug use is nothing but a wrong choice and only leads to trouble. The out-come of this lifestyle leads to jail or death in too many cases!

the truth hurts huh    

What a bunch of lowlifes. You couldn't pay me enough money to go any of these "hot spots" in Hollywood .... that are really nothing more than rooms full of self-absorbed, arrogant, ignorant, clueless, gross dumbasses.

Girls need to be more careful when dealing with a drunk. They like to pretend they're going to beat some guy's ass when they can't. That being said, Francis is a moron. You don't hit a girl back, you tell the bouncer and he throws her out. Or if she really hurts you, call the cops. The one thing you can't do is hit a girl. This guy didn't just hit her once, he kicked her when she was down. Stupid and gay. Plus he's on probation or parole so he's going to prison for it.

Jayde is making all this b.s up. She generally seems like the kind of girl that needs attention. Nice to see brody watched this and did nothing, waits till he's outside with all the bouncers before "exchanging words"

get the rest of your tough guy crew together like spencer and reinhardt and go after him! hahaha

Did Brody rip off Joe's shirt during the smackdown or was Joe shirtless to begin with. Very wierd.

So she started it...isn't what she did also describe as assault? Women want to start $hit with men, then complain when someone comes back at them. He had every right to push her down, although he didn't need to kick her or punch her. Also, is there proof that the other douche actually got tased and wasn't just afraid of getting punched in the mouth?

Joe Francis is a piece of sh!t! I never thought I would agree with Brody Jenner however, anyone that raises a hand to a woman needs to be behind bars.

Isn't Joe Francis on probation? Hopefully Brody's girlfriend will press charges and Francis will have his butt thrown back in jail!

The fact that Francis had it coming as, I said in my text, does not make me a hypocrite at all. He did. It means, dear "hrhbt and darlinglilnay" that his past actions as a sleeze merchant/sex peddler, and his cowardice,made him WORTHY to be hit. Jenner stepped up and did what he thought was necessary.Would you? Or would you run away like a frightened fawn? Its interesting though that this is only "insight" you two seemed to get from what I said. And you werent "insightful" enough to pick up on the much larger issue of just what kind of a crud Francis really is.Whats the matter? Is Francis living a life of debauchery that you can only ream of? Or is your "Girls Gone Wild" tape in the mail?

I don't condone punching a woman in the face, but suggesting she did not deserve it is a bit much. Think twice before tossing a drink in someone's face, and someone whom was most likely high and/or drunk.

They are both douchebag losers, lock them both up!

Did the Hills cameras just happen to be rolling at the time? Smells like a fake plot line to me. Anything for a buck, I guess. Why was it any of this couple's business what Joe Francis was doing???? That's why it seems like a scripted Hills show. Otherwise, who acts like that?
