Former television judge Joe Brown was arrested Monday on contempt of court charges and sentenced to five days in jail.

The 66 year-old TV star, who is now running for for the District Attorney General’s office as a Democratic candidate, was in juvenile court for a child support case when he reportedly chastised the judge, threatening to take the matter to a judicial review.

A request for bail has been denied.

He is being held at the Criminal Justice Center in Shelby County, TN.

Brown’s syndicated TV show, “Judge Joe Brown,” was cancelled last year.
