Breaking News: Judge Joe Brown Arrested In Memphis
HipHollywood has learned that Judge Joe Brown was arrested on Monday and charged with five counts of contempt of court. Brown reportedly lost control and became verbally abusive during a child support hearing where he was representing a client.
Juvenile Court Magistrate Harold Horne warned Brown to calm down, but the TV personality became increasingly agitated. Brown was given two days in jail for contempt of court, but three days were tacked on after Brown started yelling as he was being removed from the courtroom.
Brown is currently running for Shelby County District Attorney against Amy Weirich, and something tells us this will not positively impact his campaign.
