Girls Gone Wild producer Joe Francis claims prison guards abused him by denying him medication and visits and threatened to tie him naked to a chair for 2 days, the Oklahoman reports. In court filings, Francis says the abuse took place during a 3-week stay in an Oklahoma jail earlier this year. Officials deny the charges, calling Francis "quite a character."
"Mr. Francis was treated like every inmate that comes through the Grady County Law Enforcement Center," said the jail administrator. Francis, who made his fortune with a series of videos featuring college-age women exposing themselves, faces tax-evasion charges and has been in jail since April. His Oklahoma stay came while in transit to a federal prison in Nevada.
