Former televison judge Joe Brown turned himself in for a 5-day stint in jail for contempt of court. The televsion personality, known for his popular show "Judge Joe Brown," was accused of causing an uproar in the Shelby County Juvenile Court in Tennessee while representing a client.
Juvenile Court Magistrate Harold "Hal" Horne's sentenced Brown after the television personality was heard saying, "Excuse me, on what authority do you sit, by the way?... This tribunal on a General Sessions Court's authority is insufficient to establish you. Therefore, I challenge your authority to hear it. ... This is a circus, sir."
Judge Brown was initially sentenced to one day, and the number was then upped to two and finally five as Juvenile Court Chief Magistrate Dan Michael said "[Brown] all but had that courtroom in a riot."
