The Struggle Files: Judge Joe Brown Arrested In Memphis Court
What is the irony factor for Judge Joe Brown actually being arrested in a court of law?
The former television personality who had a knack for giving all attendees in his presence a piece of his mind, apparently lost his during a child support case the Juvenile Court had no record of.
Via WREG Memphis:
Well known TV court judge and former Shelby County Criminal Court Judge Joe Brown has been arrested and has been taken to 201 Poplar.
We are told 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.
The judge’s eponymous television show was cancelled in 2013 and he has since been in the news for all the wrong reasons.
He was videotaped drunk and belligerent while groping on a tattooed vixen this past August.
As for that irony factor, go ahead and increase the odd on that ratio. Just yesterday, Brown spoke at a “Man Up” rally instructing kids to stay out of trouble.
