"Girls Gone Wild" honcho Joe Francis was arrested in Los Angeles last night ... this according to the LAPD.

Francis turned himself in to police at an LAPD station Monday afternoon on 3 misdemeanor counts of false imprisonment, 1 count of assault and 1 count of dissuading the witness from making a report.

LAPD Sgt. Daryl Martin told the AP, "[Joe] was booked fingerprinted and his photo was taken ... He was held here at the station and released from custody after posting $50,000 in bail."

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... there are THREE female accusers who claim they met Joe at a nightclub ... and Joe offered to drive them to their car.

The women claim they piled inside of Joe's limo ... but instead of going to their car, Joe took them to his mansion ... even though the women told him they did NOT want to go there.

As we previously reported, Joe was investigated after allegedly pushing one of the women to the ground during an altercation at his home.

Joe claims he did not lay a hand on anyone that night.

Dirtbag Joe must have roughed up a prostitute while he was high on coke.

He's a low-life who needs to be beaten everywhere he goes simply because he exists.


His whole claim to "fame" is getting underage and barely-legal girls drunk to get them to do things that ruin their lives.

Are you surprised that Joe Francis got no jail time, not even a few hours in the slammer?

Don't worry, this is not celebrity justice... it is a financial decision. It costs too much to give preventive Herpes B and Herpes C vaccinations to all the other inmates who might come into contact with "Infectious Joe".

Hoopee    

I hope they keep this slime bag in jail this time. He's ripped women off for years with this "Girls Gone Wild" crap. Now he's hocking that "Perfect Skin" facial treatment and cleanser being pushed on 30minute infomercials by those Kardashian ho's. It's time for money to stop talking in Hollywood and there be some jail time involved. LONG JAIL OR PRISON TIME!

He's an easy target after such a run with GGW! These women probably made up these accusations in attempt to blackmail him!

False imprisonment is no joke. He must have done something more to earn that charge. Is this strike 2?
