Judge Joe Brown is headed to the slammer!!!
The legendary TV judge was apparently trying to defend a young man in a Tennessee court today, but it all went south when he started stepping on the sitting judge's toes! Judge Brown was reportedly angry because his case was pushed off of Monday's docket, so he made a big scene in court.
Apparently he continually "challenged the authority" of the sitting judge until he was eventually placed in contempt of court and arrested by the bailiff!!!
Wow!! Juvenile Court Magistrate Harold "Hal" Horne might not have brought much order to his Memphis courtroom when he desperately banged his gavel on Monday, but he sure did drum up a healthy dose of irony!
A judge in jail!? That's just crazy talk!!!
We feel bad for the 66-year-old icon, but sources say the other judge gave him like five warnings before finally hauling him off to the pokey!!!
Yikes! We guess it's not so great when the
shoe robe is on the other foot Honorable Dude!!
Hmm, we wonder wonder whether Judge Judy & Judge Wapner will take a road trip down to the Volunteer State and bail their comrade out!
