The bizarre saga of Steve Francis has taken another crazy twist -- turns out, there's a warrant out for his arrest for allegedly BURGLARIZING a BMW outside of a clam restaurant in Florida.
Here's the deal ... officials in Florida caught wind of the fact Francis was arrested in Houston for DWI over the weekend and are now trying to extradite him for an alleged burglary that went down in June.
We obtained the police report from that incident which says the ex-NBA star cased a 2003 BMW parked outside of the Cortez Clam Factory on the evening of June 15th.
Francis allegedly asked the bartender at the restaurant to give him a flashlight -- and then he went to the car and ransacked it ... taking the following items:
-- makeup pouch, wallet, gold wedding ring, gold diamond band, earrings, press credentials and $100 in cash.
Total amount -- $7,252 in goods and cash.
Two days later, cops say Francis went to the police department with a clear plastic bag of goods and said, "I just robbed somebody, take me to jail. I'm turning myself in."
Despite what appeared to be a confession, Francis left the police station without being charged with a crime.
