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

WREG is reporting Brown was representing someone in Juvenile Court for a child support case. Brown reportedly lost control and became verbally abusive.
