The Girls Gone Wild founder stepped out to attend the lavish launch of the venue formerly known as Foxtail - but his night was cut short when he was stopped at the door by club security.
A source tells Hollyscoop.com, "Security told him he wasn't allowed inside and he went crazy. After he was escorted out he started screaming at the owner of the club and tried to make his way back in."
Cops from the Los Angeles Police Department were called to intervene when Francis attempted to barge past the doormen, and officers were forced to "drag him out" of the club.
Rumours suggest Francis was banned from the club's opening by MI6 part-owner, The Hills' Frankie Delgado, who is close friends with fellow reality TV star Brody Jenner.
Francis is currently under police investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department following an altercation with Jenner and his girlfriend Jayde Nicole outside a nightclub last month (Aug09).
However, Delgado's business partner and MI6 co-owner Sam Nazarian insists he has no problem with Francis.
Nazarian tells the website, "He's a good friend and I don't know what happened but we can resolve it tomorrow. He's a great guy, I think he was too excited for our grand opening."
The director also has a slew of other legal problems to face - he was this week (begs14Sep09) ordered to stand trial over charges of tax evasion on 14 October (09).
This was no college like I ever attended! Take three typical high-school seniors--the nerd (Kevin Covais) the good-looking Regular Guy (Drake Bell) and the hell-for-leather go-for-broke Horny Fat Guy (Andy Caldwell)--and let them loose during freshman orientation at fictional Fieldmont University. Just add beer marijuana and wild sex and you’ve got what may well be a new Frat House Classic one that adheres studiously to the tenets of the teen-comedy genre which also includes defying authority and destruction of public property. When it comes to the so-called “guilty pleasures” of 2008 this makes the Dean’s List. Like any good college hangover you’ll hate yourself in the morning--but you’ll still be laughing. Credit an enthusiastic cast and a refreshing (but quite appropriate) disregard for the rules. Drake Bell (of Nickelodeon’s Drake and Josh fame) who looks far too old to be contemplating a college career is ostensibly the leading man here. Yet the principal selling point of the film is the onscreen camaraderie between he and co-stars Caldwell who plays it full-tilt a la John Belushi and Chris Farley (and that is meant as a compliment) but holds back enough when the ensemble demands require and Covais who all but steals the film with a smart shrewd take on the big-screen geek. A good deal of the film’s energy can be traced directly to them. The whole show is the three boys and they have a great easy rapport that transcends many of the worst trappings of a film like this. They feel like friends and that goes a very long way in a film that in some ways doesn’t deserve so rich an effort but benefits from it nonetheless. College marks the feature debut of director Deb Hagan who manages at times to give the film a fresh visual perspective while maintaining a relaxed but steady momentum. College is neither original nor good but it is enjoyable (far more so than would be expected) and it is fast-paced. It also delivers exactly what it promises. If it’s bang for the buck you want it’s bang for the buck you got when you enroll in College.
