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.

Joe has a real problem. This is NOT THE FIRST incident where he ha***** a woman. He obviously doesn't understand that hitting anyone is wrong. And pretty funny that you never hear of him beating up on a guy. Maybe because he would get his dumb ass kicked?

Wow, fortunate for the parties involved in the accident, that they were not:
An unarmed U.S. Veteran in Tucson, killed by a S.W.A.T. team
in May.
An unarmed U.S. Veteran in Phoenix, killed by "Deputies" in
custody, days before CHRISTmas.
A 15-year-old Middle-school student in Brownsville, TX., killed in the hallway, after -not threatening, attacking, ect.- "engaging" (?) a "Police Officer".

Thanks to TMZ, for great reporting. Unlike CBS, ABC-Disney,
NBC-Comcast, News Corp., and most national "news" providers,
who effectively buried all of the above cowardly crimes.

THESE, Federally-fostered and sanctioned executions by over-fed and over-paid "authorities", is NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE and shall NOT BE TOLERATED. AS, THE LORD GOD LIVES!

How dare anybody question what he does--at least that what he believes. What a jerk.

TMZ you forgot to add that he's also a psychopath employer who verbally attacks and abuses his employees. I know, my husband tolerates his abuse everyday at GGW corporate offices. His temper, and the fact that he became physical is of absolutely no surprise. I hope the guy gets what he deserves and rots behind bars.

i just find it funny that you're all ignoring the fact that she might have actually been at fault (since women are statistically worse drivers than men).

And then SHE slaps his phone out of his hands while he's trying to take pictures for evidence and you get on him? Yes i agree men shouldn't hit women HOWEVER if you replaced her with a man you would say he was justified in hitting the guy.

So why are women just allowed to assault men with no worries of repercussion?
