Looks like the legal system is going wild for Joe Francis.
On Tuesday, Judge Fernando M. Olguin of the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles issued an arrest warrant for the Girls Gone Wild creator.

Allegedly, the 42-year-old failed to return two luxury cars — a 2007 Cadillac Escalade and a 2012 Bentley Flying Spur — to lawyers after filing for bankruptcy in 2013.
According to court papers, the Kardashian friend claims that he is unable to fork over said vehicles because a Mexican strip club owner took them after several business ventures folded.
This isn't the first time Mr. Francis has gotten in trouble for his money woes.
In August of last year, U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Sandra Klein recommended jail time for the entrepreneur.
The Georgia-native is apparently living in Mexico with his girlfriend Abbey Wilson and their two twins Alexandria Claire Francis and Athena Olivia Francis.
Joe's bankruptcy lawyer declined to comment.

This guy just can’t stay out of trouble!
Joe Francis was arrested on Friday after he allegedly attacked an employee at his old Girls Gone Wild office.
For some reason, Francis was at the office, even though a restraining order says he can’t come within 100 feet of the building!
But he made his way up to the 10th floor, where security stopped Joe. While they called the cops, an employee tried to get Joe into one of the offices and block him in.
That’s when Joe allegedly pushed the man, which led to a citizen’s arrest.
Mr. Francis was arrested for misdemeanor battery and they let him out.
BUT there’s a catch!
Maybe Michael Lohan should get his own docuseries! It would certainly get wild, in more ways than one!
Lindsay Lohan's papa Michael is in some hot water as he's currently being sued for over $1 million after being accused of scamming an investor.
Allegedly, Richard Reitano was asked to loan money to Michael, after Michael said he had gotten the rights to the Girls Gone Wild videos from its creator Joe Francis in order to dub the films in Spanish. Ay ay ay!
Although Richard apparently gave him $25 thousand, he claims no tapes were ever made, and that Michael never had the rights to begin with.
So not only does Richard want his initial contribution plus interest, he wants $1 million.
$1 million? That's a lot of Mardi Gras beads.

After Justin Bieber was arrested this morning, it looks like he wasted no time in hiring a team to help him out!
Bieberoni hired fame lawyer Roy Black who got William Kennedy Smith an acquittal on charges of rape, represented Rush Limbaugh on his misuse of oxycontin charges, repped Kelsey Grammar, Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis, and many more!
AND the Biebs has gotten the best lawyer in Miami, at least according to his Real Housewives of Miami wife, Lea Black, he did!
Roy will apparently also be teaming up with Justin's LA based lawyer Howard Weitzman & also Miami criminal defense attorney Howard Srebnick.
Quite a team!
Makes us wonder, however, since BiebsyBear is a client now, will he be required to attend the Black's Annual Gala next year?!?!
That'll be a sight to see!

Uh-oh!! All of the coed tittays in the world might not help Joe dig himself out of this debt-filled ditch!
Seven months after home-skillet declared bankruptcy, it looks like Joe Francis' bank is finally foreclosing on his Bel-Air mansion!!
Sources at JPMorgan Chase Bank are reportedly saying the porn mogul is $127,686.91 behind on his mortgage payments!!!
Yikes! Dude will need to sell a truckload of $9.99 DVDs to pay back that debt!!
Hope the porn king was wearing a raincoat, because the you-know-what just hit the fan!
Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis was hauled out of a courtroom in handcuffs minutes ago when a judge sentenced him to 270 days in a county jail for attacking a woman in his home back in 2011.
Joe was convicted months ago on several counts of assault, false imprisonment, and "dissuading a witness from reporting," and today the judge wasn't feeling especially lenient.
Not only will he serve AT LEAST 270 days in jail, but he will also
