'Bromance' and 'The Hills' star Brody Jenner tasered during bar fight
By Christopher Rocchio, 08/28/2009
Brody Jenner and Joe Francis got into a bar brawl last night that allegedly began when the Girls Gone Wild founder punched a girl and ended with The Hills regular being tasered.
Jenner claims Francis attacked his girlfriend at West Hollywood's Guys and Dolls club, which led to a verbal argument that caused both men to be ejected and fight in the street before Jenner was allegedly tasered by an unknown person, TMZ reported Friday.
"Joe Francis beat up my lady this morning for no reason! Pulled her to the ground, punched & kicked her," the Bromance star wrote in an early Friday morning Twitter post.
"What does that say about him. How can you call yourself a man when you beat up a girl?? Joe Francis is a piece of sh-t. Joe Francis needs to be in jail!!!"
The incident reportedly began when Jenner's girlfriend, Jayde Nicole, saw Francis hitting on a former ex-girlfriend.
Jenner told TMZ Francis was "unrelentingly" hitting on the girl -- a friend of both his and Nicole's. Nicole responded by throwing a drink in Francis' face, which is when things exploded.
"[Francis] came up and grabbed [my friend's] face and I bumped him," a visibly upset Nicole told TMZ after the incident.
"I turned around and he grabbed my hair and punched me in the face. He threw me to the ground and he kicked me in my stomach and my chest. Then I just don't know what happened after that because I was on the ground."
As the club's security dragged Francis away Jenner pursued, according to TMZ, which added a shouting match ensued and both men were ejected from the establishment.
"It really is for real. It's a traumatic time," an agitated Jenner told TMZ. "My girlfriend just got f--king beat up by Joe Francis. Beat up! Beat up! Dragged back by her f--king hair and socked in the face."
Once outside, Jenner claims he tried to re-enter the club to check on Nicole but was stopped by security -- at which point he saw Francis and punched him in the face. Jenner told TMZ he was then tasered by an unknown person and fell to the ground.
Francis fled the scene sans shirt, and police subsequently arrived at 2:46AM.
While TMZ reported no arrests were made, Nicole stated she does plan to file battery charges against the Girls Gone Wild founder. In addition, TMZ reported Nicole had a bruised cheek, swollen face, bruised left rib, sore lower abdomen, and some of her hair pulled out.
"It is Guys and Dolls policy not to comment on incidents that are being handled by the police department," a rep for the club told TMZ. "We trust that this situation will be resolved both swiftly and privately."
Jenner and Nicole were at Guys and Dolls celebrating his 26th birthday, which was actually on August 21. However Jenner was in the hospital on his actual birthday recovering from a ruptured appendix.
