Shelby County Juvenile Court officials said Brown, 66, was sentenced to five days in jail after causing an outburst Monday in a courtroom hearing. A spokesman for the Shelby County Juvenile Court, chief Magistrate Judge Dan Michael, said Brown appeared to have been representing a client who was accused of not paying child support and caused a spectacle in court by yelling and repeatedly challenging the juvenile court magistrate’s authority.

Brown is currently running to be the top prosecutor in Shelby County.

Anita Baker: Arrest warrant issued for singer

An arrest warrant has been issued for Grammy Award-winning singer Anita Baker.

A Wayne County Circuit judge signed off on the warrant this week. It was sought by the lawyer for a company that says Baker owes $15,000 for work done on her Grosse Pointe, Mich., home.

Baker’s lawyer, Jamal Hamood, says he plans to file a motion Friday to cancel the warrant. Hamood says Baker wasn’t served with papers and didn’t know she had been sued in 2011 by Ray A. Smith Painting & Decorating. He says Baker is out of town and will remain so until the warrant issue is cleared up.

The company’s lawyer, Daniel Gerow, tells The Detroit News he doesn’t want Baker to go to jail, but only wants to see his client get paid.

Judge orders Bieber video released with blackouts

Remaining police video clips of Justin Bieber after his January arrest will be made public with sensitive portions blacked out to protect the singer’s privacy, a judge ruled Tuesday.

Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield said two of the five unreleased video clips depict the singer’s genitalia during a urine test for drugs at the Miami Beach Police Department. Altfield agreed with lawyers for Bieber, who turned 20 on Saturday, that the video’s airing would be an invasion of privacy that outweighed the public’s right to know.

“Mr. Bieber’s right to privacy is paramount,” the judge said. “He has not lost his right to privacy, and that is what is important here.”

Justin Bieber's security guard arrested

A security guard for Justin Bieber admitted to taking a camera from a photographer but told officers he wanted only to delete photos taken outside an arcade the singer had visited, according to police documents released Wednesday.

Photographer Jason Winslow was in a parking lot outside the Sandy Springs Funhouse family entertainment complex when security guard Hugo Hesny told him to leave, according to a police report. Winslow continued to shoot photos from farther away. Hesny then chased him, cut him off, opened the door of Winslow’s vehicle, took Winslow’s camera, and drove away, the photographer told police.

Hesny, 32, of Davie, Fla., is charged with robbery by snatch, Sandy Springs police Capt. Steve Rose said. He is scheduled to appear in court Thursday in Atlanta.

An attorney for Hesny, Elias Hilal of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he hasn’t had an opportunity to review the police reports. Hilal said he was planning to fly to Georgia on Wednesday afternoon to meet with Hesny.

A representative for Bieber did not immediately return an email seeking comment Wednesday.

Bieber was not outside and was not part of the argument, police said. READ FULL STORY
