Former hand surgeon Michael Brown was back in a downtown Houston court on Tuesday.

Brown was arrested on charges of violating his child support and spent Monday night in jail.

Brown walked into the courtroom wearing an orange jumpsuit the next day and took the stand in his defense.

Brown has had a slew of legal problems in recent years. Earlier this year, authorities said Brown was arrested after an incident on an overseas flight.

Last year, a New York woman sued Brown, accusing the former physician of giving her herpes.

In 2011, Brown was acquitted of beating his ex-wife.

In 2006, Brown lost his medical license after testing positive for cocaine.

Brown is the founder and owner of Brown Hand Center, among other businesses.
