MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WREG) -- Well-known TV court judge and former Shelby County Criminal Court Judge Joe Brown has been arrested.

WREG reports Brown showed up to Juvenile Court to represent someone in a child support case.
Court workers told Brown they had no record of the case.

Brown reportedly lost control and became verbally abusive.

Juvenile Court Magistrate Harold Horne warned Brown to calm down, but he did not.

Brown was given two days in jail for contempt of court, but that increased to three days when he once again started yelling as he was being removed from the courtroom.

Brown’s television show was cancelled last year and he is now running for Shelby County District Attorney against Amy Weirich.
