Joe Francis a badder boy (allegedly)

City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo has charged Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis with one count of misdemeanor sexual battery for allegedly touching an 18-year-old woman on the breast, buttocks and inner thigh over her objections at a birthday party here in January. Arraignment is May 22 — I assume that means if Francis is out of the Florida lockup by then. His karma has gone pretty cold since he roughed up journalist Claire Hoffman last year, eh?
