"Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis arrested on assault charge after scuffle

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - "Girls Gone Wild" creator Joe Francis has been arrested on suspicion of assault after getting into a scuffle, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Los Angeles police Sgt. John Juarez told the Times that the 41-year-old was arrested Friday evening at an office building on Wilshire Boulevard after some "pushing and shoving."

Francis filed for bankruptcy protection last year after years of legal troubles and was issued a "stay away" order by a bankruptcy judge.

Juarez told the newspaper police were investigating whether Francis' presence at the building violated the restraining order.

Online jail records show Francis was released Saturday on $20,000 bail.

It was not immediately known if Francis has a lawyer. Neither Francis nor a representative for him could be reached for comment Saturday.

Francis' raunchy "Girls Gone Wild" videos show women baring their breasts.
