0829-joe-francis-tmz-01Joe Francis is now facing 7 misdemeanor counts for his alleged attack at "Girls Gone Wild" headquarters, and a judge has issued a warrant for his arrest.

TMZ broke the story ... Joe got busted back in May after scrapping with a security guard and a 'GGW' employee at his old office. He was also hauled in for violating a restraining order that required him to stay away from the building.

Now prosecutors have charged Joe with 1 count of criminal threats, 2 counts trespassing, 1 count of battery, and 3 counts of disobeying a court order.

According to a source close to Joe ... he actually called cops the night of the arrest, because he says the security guard attacked HIM. We're told there is surveillance video to support Joe's claim.

As for the restraining order, Joe believed 'GGW' had moved out of the building ... so he felt the order no longer applied. Plus, we're told he had only gone there to pick up belongings from his old office.
