HOUSTON -

Former hand surgeon Michael Brown has been ordered to spend time in jail.

Brown was arrested on charges of violating his child support and spent Monday night in jail. He bonded out, but on Friday was found to be in contempt of court.

Brown was sentenced to 180 days in jail.

A judge said Brown has more than 40 violations of child support.

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.
