Judge Joe Brown Arrested after Courtroom Tirade

Judge Joe Brown has had a tough run at things lately, finding himself on the wrong side of the law this week.  According to TMZ, the judge was arrested after losing his cool in a courtroom in Memphis.

Judge Brown was reportedly in court to represent someone in a child support case.  That’s when the court staff sent Judge Brown away, stating that they had no recollection of the case at hand.  Then, Brown allegedly started to yell and scream at the courtroom staff, which led to him being taken away by police.

TMZ is claiming that Judge Brown was told to calm down repeatedly, but refused to back down. He was running for the District Attorney of Shelby County and was reportedly  “playing to the peanut gallery” and “incited a near riot.”  Maybe this will help him get elected in a city where people are looking for someone to fight for their rights and not be afraid of the system.

Brown’s official charge?  Contempt of court.  The judge was cited five times and ordered to spend five days in jail.

The 66-year old Brown once had a show on CBS, but the show was canceled after extensive conflicts over salary.  Brown is a highly-accomplished man, graduating at the top of his class at Dorsey High School in South Central Los Angeles.  He then went on to earn his bachelors and law degrees from UCLA.

Brown, who is a member of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, then went on to become the first black prosecutor in the city of Memphis.  After that, he started his own law firm and eventually became a judge.  So, if he is elected in Memphis, the city would be getting an extraordinary legal mind at the head of its system.
