A “Girls Gone Wild" producer was arrested on suspicion of filming without a permit Wednesday after Los Angeles police were called to a Hollywood Hills home.

The unidentified man was detained on a misdemeanor charge of commercial filming without a permit and  released at the scene of the "Girls Gone Wild” production being shot at a home on Vulcan Drive, LAPD Cmdr. Andy Smith told The Times.

Los Angeles Police Department officials estimated that about 30 people were involved in the production when officers showed up.

The home had been rented by a man who apparently was subletting it to filming companies, according to law enforcement sources familiar with the case.

Smith said the LAPD supports filming in the city but that such productions “need to be permitted and not detrimental to the community.”

“It doesn’t matter if you're 'Girls Gone Wild' or Cecil B. DeMille, you need a permit to film,” Smith said.

The incident was first reported by TMZ.com.
