Joe Francis

In Physical Fight After Car Crash

1/5/2012 12:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0105_joe_francis_tmz_wm_exJoe Francis was handcuffed just minutes ago in Beverly Hills, after a car accident with a female motorist that ended in an all out physical fight.

The "Girls Gone Wild" creator was driving his Bentley on Rodeo Drive when his car collided with a female driver.  We're told the two began arguing over who was at fault.  Francis tells TMZ ... the woman grabbed his cell phone as he attempted to snap photos, and cops say at that point the two engaged in mutual combat.

Cops say both suffered minor injuries.  Francis says his finger was cut when the woman tried to grab the phone.

Police un-cuffed Francis and decided no one would be arrested.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the accident occurred as a result of Joe opening his Bentley door into traffic. The other driver then crashed into it.

I guess making money off of taking advantage of under age drunken girls on spring break can't buy class.

He obviously has little or no respect for women, except when they can make him money. Kinda sounds like a pimp!!!

Driving a Bentley in LA with his untold millions and he is angry. Love it. Wouldn't expect any less from an ego-maniac such as Francis.

i'll reserve judgement because i know everyone will get on Joe Francis since he's the celeb in the situation but i've been in an accident before where an old guy ran a red light and smacked into me and then tried saying i ran a red light and it can really piss you off when you know you're innocent and someone is blatantly calling you a liar.

I know i'd be pissed as hell if i were trying to take pictures of it as evidence and some bitch slapped my camera out of my hand.

Sounds like both people involved in the accident are immature.

LA phony baloney people in their Bentleys etc. As if a car or 'things' make a person. Empty people trying to fill infinite holes with finite 'things', trying desperately to impress others.

The guy is a complete douchebag, BUT HE HAD EVERY RIGHT TO TAKE PICTURES. If someone is in a car accident, that person has the right to take pictures as evidence for personal defense in a court of law, and for insurance purposes.

I can't stand the guy, but he was within his legal right. She probably caused the whole thing, that's why she didn't want pictures taken for evidence.
