MEMPHIS, Tenn. (CNN) — Former TV judge Joe Brown has landed on the other side of the law.

CNN has learned he was arrested for contempt of court in Memphis, Tennessee Monday.

The Commercial Appeal reports 66-year-old Brown became verbally abusive with a judge while representing a client in a child support case.

He was sentenced to five days in jail, one for each act of contempt.

Brown’s TV show was canceled last year.

He is now running for district attorney in Shelby County, Tennessee.
