'Girls Gone Wild' Joe Francis Back in Jail

It looks like Joe Francis, founder of Girls Gone Wild, has managed to tick off a judge on top of the rest of his legal woes.  Francis was arrested yesterday after showing up for a court hearing five hours late.

He is accused of claiming more than $20 million in phony business expenses on his corporate tax return, including $3.8 million for his luxury home in Mexico and $10.4 million in consulting fees.  Those are some hefty consultant fees and it looks like the IRS isn't buying any of it.

Reason for being late?  Francis told the judge that he had the "flu", which apparently didn't sit well with her honor.   She ordered a U.S. marshal to cuff him and he was led away for booking.

Francis, who has already entered a plea of not guilty, is scheduled to appear for his trial on March 31st.   It's hard to say how long the judge will let him stew in the slammer but we're guessing Joe will make every effort to show up on time for his next court appearance.

Check out a couple of Joe's previous mugshots below.  More celebrity mugshots here.
