Joe Francis

I'm INNOCENT

... And I Have Video Evidence!

Joe Francis
insists he never laid a hand on the chick who claims the "Girls Gone Wild" honcho assaulted her in his Hollywood mansion -- telling TMZ, he even has security footage to PROVE he's innocent.

Joe tells us, he has THREE surveillance cameras that captured the 3-woman altercation at his home back in January -- from several different angles -- and he wasn't involved.

According to Francis, two of the girls were fighting EACH OTHER -- and all three were escorted out of his house for being unruly.

It's a drastically different story from what the girls told police -- that Francis grabbed one of them by the throat and hair, and slammed her head into the tiled floor of his house ... four times.

Francis was charged with one count of assault causing great bodily injury as a result -- in addition to three counts of false imprisonment and one count of dissuading a witness from filing a police report.

But Francis insists it's all BS -- telling us, there wasn't even a tiled floor anywhere near the scene of the fight. TMZ spoke to two other people at Francis' home that night -- and both are prepared to testify in Joe's defense.

Interesting side note: the City Attorney who charged Francis is currently prepping to run for D.A. -- and Joe believes the entire case is politically motivated.

So HIS OWN video footage and two "witnesses" that probably work for him (or he's just paying them to lie) are going to exonerate him? Yeah, sure. Must be nice to be able to buy your way out of trouble. What a s*** bag.

Man, he is UGLY!!!!! No woman with any shred of dignity left would hang out, or let alone go to his s *****bag mansion. EW EW EW
I have no doubt he assaulted the woman, he has absolutely no respect for women at all. Abusers will always abuse.

I gotta say I doubt he hit her/them. Yes, she may have been hit by someone but he's smart enough not to do it himself and just stand back while it all went down.

He is Aniston dear friend    

Terry Richardson and him are both Aniston friends.

This 42 years old woman is a disgrace for syumpathiosing with those two abusive nasty pigs. She is just lucky she isn't a mother. If she had a teen daughter God knows what who could have have happened to her being the same age as their victims and while being in the company of uncle Terry and uncle Joe... yuck, your company tells a lot about your morality !

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

He's no more innocent than the skanks he films.

He looks like Pauly D with no tan & normal hair.

This d*uche tries so hard to be a ladies man but it's pretty obvious that he hates women and has mommy issues. At what point is he going to stop trying to relive his high school days in search of a better outcome?

He probably can't get it up for a woman unless he's high as a kite. Look at him with the lip balm, frosty eyeliner and blow dried hair. What a fruitcake. I hope all of the celebrities who have stayed at his house realize he's filmed their every move.

I love how men always just get charged without any investigation. A woman makes an accusation and you are automatically guilty.

It looks like Joe has had extensive work done including sanded down and veneered teeth, lip reduction and nose job.

POS. Needless to say, he is a very close friend of the K Klan. They vacation at his house in Mexico.
