He's used to being the one giving orders, but former judge Joe Brown was arrested on Monday (March 24) after being found in contempt of court.

While appearing on behalf of a client on a child support case in a Memphis juvenile court, the former daytime television staple was rebuffed by court staff who told him they had no record of the case.

According to TMZ, he was asked to quiet down several times, but was eventually arrested for five counts of contempt and ordered to spend five days in jail.

Currently, Joe is a candidate for district attorney and it's unclear how this incident will affect the election.
