Shelby County Juvenile Court officials said the 66-year-old Brown was sentenced to five days in jail after causing an outburst Monday in a child support hearing. Brown is running in the Democratic primary for Shelby County district attorney general.
Magistrate Judge Harold "Hal" Horne charged the former TV judge with contempt of court, said Dan Michael, chief magistrate judge of the Shelby County Juvenile Court.
"He darn near caused a riot in the courtroom, he had people so inflamed," Michael said of the former TV judge.
Brown could not be reached for comment. Neither jail officials nor juvenile court officials knew whether he had retained a lawyer. WREG-TV was reporting that Brown had been released from jail.
The former TV judge was representing a woman who had been brought in on a warrant in a child support case, Michael said. Brown, he said, was yelling and repeatedly challenging Horne’s authority and even addressing his comments to a crowd of people inside the courtroom.
Brown’s nationally syndicated TV show was canceled last year.]]>

Bradley Cooper is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning actor but according to an interview in 2008 by critically-acclaimed, award-winning actor and comedian Louis C.K., the "American Hustle" star should have failed.
Why’s that? Because, as an acting student, Cooper once asked Sean Penn a question about "Hurlyburly."
Okay, that’s confusing, but it’s more or less the deal. Louis C.K. joked that the moment a student in the audience during "Inside the Actor’s Studio" asks a famous person–he specifically cited Sean Penn–a question, that’s basically the moment you know that student will never be famous.
Guess who was in the audience (with a question) when Sean Penn visited "Inside the Actor’s Studio" in 1999…

“[They’re] a scrappy bunch of agents who are sort of working on the lower tier levels of the Marvel Universe and trying to stop threats before they even get to the Avengers-level threats. It’s almost like when you watch The Wire, and the guys like Pryzbylewski are just chasing the paper trail but that’s kind of the whole case. That’s where they can bring these guys down, is they’re doing the kind of brutal grunt work. There are these people doing the day to day that keeps the world from spinning into chaos. [They say,] ‘no, we don’t have the shiny Tony Stark, Hawkeye, Black Widow stuff, but we are in it up to our necks and we’re doing it. I really like that. There’s a great sense of camaraderie … They introduced Agent Garrett, who’s one of my favorite Marvel characters, and I kept asking them on the set, ‘is he going to be an android [like in the comics]. They’re just like, ‘You’ll have to wait and see.’”]]>

It states that Meadow Rain Walker, 15, has been living with her since the death of her son in a fiery crash on Nov. 30 north of Los Angeles.

Meadow Walker is the sole beneficiary of her father’s estate.
Cheryl Walker’s guardianship filing states that her granddaughter’s mother is also living with her but is not an appropriate caretaker due to issues with alcohol.
