Judge Joe Brown Arrested

Judge Joe Brown has been arrested following a court meltdown.

Long known for establishing order in the court, Judge Joe Brown has reportedly found himself on the wrong side of the law.

According to TMZ, the former TV judge was arrested following a court appearance at a Memphis juvenile court. Brown had arrived to represent a client in a child custody case; however, he was asked to leave when the court staff said they had “no record of the case in question.”

Brown, who is running for D.A. of Shelby County, allegedly became verbally abusive and was later arrested for contempt of court and ordered to spend five days in jail.
