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.

he always preached that black men have to be a rold model for young black men....well, he acts exactly as the males he pretended to be helping...maybe they got it from him...saw the video of him drunk with young women on his lap also....is the black community proud of his hypocrisy now? probably and that is the shame of it...he is doing more harm to young black men by acting the fool

Making millions being a TV judge I guess has gone to Judge Joe's head. Now if they could only throw Judge Judy in the hoosegow and shut her up.

I wish it had been 3 weeks not 3 hours. His show is ridiculously ignorant and he doesn't react to anything.
