No charges against Joe Francis for dragging Jayde Nicole by hair
Smut peddler Joe Francis must be down to his ninth life, because late Tuesday it was announced the sleaze merchant has managed to escape charges in a club brawl (more of a beatdown, really) with Playboy Playmate of the Year Jayde Nicole, Radar Online says. Ah, the efficiency of the L.A. injustice system.
The district attorney's office said it will not take legal action against Francis, Nicole or her boyfriend Brody Jenner, all of whom were involved in the fracas at Guys and Dolls on Aug. 28. The office said that Jayde (real last name of Gelette) started the incident by pouring a drink on Francis.
"Gelette appears to have acted without immediate provocation in her assault upon suspect/victim Francis," a report stated about surveillance video from the club (watch it above). Somehow they concluded that pouring a shot of booze on a jackass like Francis can rightfully precipitate being grabbed by the hair and thrown to the floor. Hey, she deserved it, right? The report finds "the interests of justice do not support the filing of criminal charges."
Both of them have filed civil suits against each other, so we'll hear more about it, but all you drunken college girls should remember: Before whipping off your top for Joe on spring break, remember that chivalry is dead and authorities in L.A. will say it's just fine and dandy if you spill a beer on Joe and he smashes your face into the floor when you're not looking.
