Judge Joe Brown

They Tried to Keep Me Behind Bars ...

BY FALSIFYING COURT DOCS

Judge Joe Brown is still hopping mad about being arrested Monday and now tells TMZ he thinks the judge who tossed him behind bars conspired to try and keep him there longer.

In case you missed it ... Brown was tossed in the slammer in Memphis on Monday after having a meltdown in court. Brown, who is still a practicing lawyer, was there to represent his client in a child support hearing (that becomes relevant shortly).

TMZ spoke with Brown this morning and he still claims the fact he is running for D.A. of Shelby County played a role in how he was treated.

He also claims the magistrate helped to "falsify documents" so it would read that he was jailed for child support violations instead of contempt ... an attempt to keep him behind bars longer.

Brown made it through his three hours in jail unscathed -- he says he signed autographs and saw a few former clients (not a good sign for his lawyering skills) but avoided the food. 

Wise choice.

The judge's behavior was unprofessional, arrogant, and, frankly, immature These are not characteristics you would want in a D.A.

I am very likely to believe what anything he says. I live in Memphis and I see the most ignorant people in possessions of power. all over the city. I think Judge Joe Brown would make a welcome change.

It's easy to make comments on either side when your not forced to live by corrupt law officers and judges that run towns, not tv real life! Someone needs to get angry and disgusted by these fake courts! When the shoes on the other foot they will see too! Good for you joe brown!

I live in Memphis and have been through the court system on a child custody case and also have a friend that went through the same thing only his was worse than mine. Something should be done about the court system in Memphis tn. It's all about money and who you know and if you don't believe a city this large can have this kind if problem then please investigate further.

Wait. Wasn't the first story that he had a meltdown because he was there for a case that those in charge say wasn't on the docket for that day? How does him having a rave out become "child support violations"? Or is he his own client that he's representing in this? Not that that alone would explain it.
