Joe Francis is accused of assault by a female - what else is new - but insists he never laid a hand on a girl who says he got physical with her at his mansion.
He says surveillance cameras will prove him right, too, as video captured a three-woman altercation at his home back in January - and he wasn't involved.
According to Francis, two of the girls were fighting each other and all three were escorted outta there for being unruly. There was no attack by Joe, period.
The ladies told the police that Francis grabbed one of them by the throat and hair, and slammed her head into the tiled floor of his house - more than once.
Francis was charged with one count of battery causing great bodily injury, but has fought it all the way, saying there isn't even a tiled floor near the scene.
Regardless, Pacific Community Police Station officials tell E! News he was booked on a misdemeanor false imprisonment charge and released today.
The City Attorney who charged Francis at the time is currently prepping to run for D.A., and Joe believes that the entire case is politically motivated.
It may very well be. He may very well be innocent. He remains a sleaze, however. Like it or not, that's not going to help his credibility very much.
