(Newser) – Joe Francis turned himself into police last night for … something. Sources tell the Los Angeles Times the Girls Gone Wild founder turned himself in to the LAPD on a misdemeanor warrant for false imprisonment, but no details were given. TMZ spoke with sources who say the story goes something like this: Three women (the accusers) met Francis at a nightclub. He said he'd give them a lift to their car in his limo. Instead, he allegedly took them to his mansion against their wishes.
