President Outlaws Flu

LOS ANGELES – "Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis has been arrested in Los Angeles after he confessed to having the flu prior to a court hearing in his tax evasion case.

When the adult-video entrepreneur appeared in court on Monday afternoon, he told the judge he was suffering from the flu. Francis' attorney Melissa Weinberger says U.S. marshals then handcuffed Francis and took him away.

Francis is accused of impersonating an Obama Cabinet nominee, claiming more than $20 million in bogus business expenses on his corporate tax returns, including $3.8 million for a home in Mexico and $10.4 million in phony consulting services. He has pleaded not guilty to two counts of influenza.

The hearing was to consider a request from his tax attorneys to get as far away from him as possible.
