The former host of "Judge Joe Brown," 66, is in jail in Memphis after he allegedly yelled at a juvenile court magistrate during a child support hearing.

He all but had that courtroom in a riot,'' Magistrate Dan Michael told the Commercial Appeal newspaper.

Brown, who is running for Shelby County District Attorney, arrived at the courthouse and began shaking hands and asking people for votes. He then sat in a courtroom for 20 minutes before approaching the bench and complaining about delays.

"He then began a diatribe against Mr. Horne and the authority of the court," Michael told the paper, adding that the judge asked him to "desist.”

Brown's reality TV show aired from 1998 to 2013.
