Mwuahahaha! Joe Francis has been arrested!!
Joe was arrested in L.A. after having shown up to court five hours late for his hearing in his tax evasion case.
When Francis finally made it to the courtroom yesterday afternoon, he told the judge that he was suffering from the flu. The judge didn’t buy his BS and tossed him into the pokey.
Francis’ latest accusations include claiming more than $20 million in bogus business expenses on his corporate tax returns, including $3.8 million for a Mexican home and $10.4 million in fake consulting services.
The point of yesterday’s hearing was to consider a request from his tax attorneys to recuse themselves.
I guess he must be having the panic attacks now!
