'Girls Gone Wild'

Photo Shoot Raided by LAPD

LAPD officers just busted into a "Girls Gone Wild" photo shoot in a Hollywood Hills home -- and TMZ has learned it's all because the models might be getting wild on camera ... without a permit.

According to law enforcement sources ... police went to the home to conduct a "film permit investigation" because there's been an ongoing issue of people -- not only GGW -- shooting there without proper permits.

A GGW rep says they have about a dozen staffers -- including requisite girls in bikinis -- at the home shooting their "Search for the Hottest Girl in America."

The rep claims LAPD entered the private residence without a proper warrant or probable cause.

Our law enforcement sources say the investigation is not targeting GGW -- and instead the cops want the person leasing the house and allowing people to shoot there. We're told police have been to the location multiple times over the last year.

Since when are cops able to go into a private residence without a warrant? I was not aware I was living in Soviet Russia. O_O

Maybe the police just wanted to see the girls?

No warrant? This will NOT hold up in court. Why are these officers not doing things legally? They are taught that in college and I'm sure in Police Academy as well.

He is a s***bag.

LAPD should check all model's ids for age and verify it on the computer to bust fake ids. I bet you there is about 2 or 3 underages.

To make it in his business is very difficult, and he has done a hell of a job. Joe Francis is an intelligent, hard working guy. I respect that. The Cops are just being Assh*les
