Judge Joe Brown

They Tried to Keep Me Behind Bars ...

BY FALSIFYING COURT DOCS

EXCLUSIVE

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.

because he's black he thinks he has to answer to no one, especially a white judge, he is playing a big race card due to the fact he is running for political office against a white person, and the media is helping all the way by giving him the exposure he needs . Wake up people the only racist we have ar the blacks.

And now for the rest of the story: Joe Brown showed up in court with his campaign manager, his attorney, and several political supporters. The case he was there to present,had already been disposed of. He was using the media for media for his political campaign. I too live in Memphis. This guy was a joke when he was a judge here, he was a joke when he was on TV, and now he is trying to make a joke of the judicial system in the media to further his campaign. He did not walk away free. He still has a court date. The Bar Association should receive a complaint on him. This is definitely not the way Memphis needs their District Attorney General to act.
