Former Court TV Judge, Joe Brown, was arrested in Memphis, Tennessee today. According to WREG, the former Shelby County Criminal Court Judge became quite angry and verbally abusive when he showed up to Juvenile Court to represent a client in a child support case only to be told there was no record of the case.

The 66-year old Brown was warned by the presiding judge to calm down, but refused to comply. He was slapped with a contempt of court charge and ordered to stay two days in jail. However, after he continued yelling an additional 2 days was extended. The court staff was described as being completely shocked by his behavior.

Brown, whose television show ended last year, is currently running for Shelby County District Attorney.
