From TMZ 

Judge Joe Brown just got a taste of his own medicine — the former TV judge was arrested after allegedly blowing a gasket at a Memphis juvenile court … TMZ has confirmed.

Brown showed up to court Monday to represent someone in a child support case — but was turned away by court staff, who informed Brown they had no record of the case in question.

Brown reportedly lost it … becoming verbally abusive and was warned several times to quiet down.

We’re told Brown — who is running for D.A. of Shelby County — was “playing to the peanut gallery” and “incited a near riot.”

Brown reportedly ignored the judge and was subsequently arrested for contempt of court.

Brown was cited for contempt 5 times and ultimately ordered to spend 5 days in jail.  He left under his own power and was screaming the entire time. Check out the audio from court … it’s wild.
