Joe Francis Makes Like Jason Wahler

If Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis wants to be like Jason Wahler, he has a lot of work to do.

Francis may have made like the star of MTV's The Hills by being arrested Tuesday in Florida, but it wasn't for anything as cool or tough as assault and criminal trespassing.

Instead, the U.S. Marshal's Office in Panama City, Fla., booked Francis at 6:30 a.m. at the Panama City airport on a warrant seeking his arrest for criminal contempt of court. For someone who has slept with Kim Kardashian, that's pretty boring.

Currently, the man that made an offer to Antonella Barba for gobs of money is being held at the Bay County jail.

Although Francis' attorneys apparently released a statement saying the Girls Gone Wild head honcho was on his way to voluntarily turn himself in, the arrest was carried out by airport police who recognized him before he could present himself to the Marshal's Office.

A judge ordered Francis's arrest last week after Francis reportedly changed the terms of a settlement deal stemming from a 2003 lawsuit in which seven women accused him of victimizing them by filming their enormous boobs while they were on spring break in Panama City.

Francis was ordered by U.S. District Judge Richard Smoak to surrender to authorities in Panama City by noon Thursday to begin serving jail time for contempt of court, the city's News Herald reported. However, sources told People magazine that Francis missed the deadline.

Perhaps he was busy cleansing himself from the memories of Tara Reid nude.
