According to TMZ, Judge Joe Brown is currently in jail.

The former daytime TV star is reportedly serving five days behind bars for contempt of court.

In the clip above, you can hear Brown going off on a judge in a child support case in which he was serving as attorney for a friend.

Brown managed to delay his sentence for 17 months, but as of today, he’s stopped appealing and started doing his time.

Obviously, it’s not much of a sentence, but we imagine it’s pretty embarrassing for a man who’s spent his life ensuring that the law is upheld.

Stay strong, Judge! Keep your head down and maybe you can get out early on good behavior.
