Daytime television mainstay Judge Joe Brown was arrested today after allegedly causing a scene in a Memphis Juvenile Court, according to TMZ. Brown showed up to the court to represent a client in a child support case, but was turned away after the staff told him there was no record of the case in their files.

This apparently sent Brown into a rage, causing him to become verbally abusive, the site is reporting. After ignoring the judge telling him to calm down, Brown was arrested and charged with contempt of court five times and ordered to spend five days in jail. Listen to the shocking audio below:
