Joe Francis has been arrested after he showed up five hours late to a court

The Girls Gone Wild founder was arrested after the presiding judge issued a
warrant because of his tardiness, according to

Citing the flu as the reason for failing to show up on time, Francis was
arrested and later released on house arrest orders.
