Joe Francis’ Alcoholism Root Of Quickie Jail Stint?

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Media mogul Joe Francis isn’t just a jailbird, he’s also an alcoholic.

Earlier this week, the Girls Gone Wild creator was sent to the slammer for a quickie stint for being five hours late to an important court hearing because he allegedly had “the flu.”

According to addiction expert Doug Thorburn, Francis’ latest visit to jail is a surefire sign that he’s an alcoholic.

Thorburn says Francis’ disregard for the law and feeling of being “supreme” is the first red flag.

The fact that he made up an excuse to cover for himself is also quite telling.

Says Thorburn: “Alcoholics will lie, cheat, steal, and manipulate. They don’t think the rules apply to them.”

Additionally, Thorburn says alcoholics often have “ego issues,” and will do anything it takes to be the center of attention.

Francis’ frequent use of expletives is also a sign of a serious boozehound.

Thorburn says the “Hugh Hefner wannabe” once complained over loud garbage trucks working his neighborhood in the morning, usually the time alkies are hungover from a night of hard-partying.
