A couple who was supposed to be on the Maury Povich show, ended up in jail.

Hours before the Chicago, Illinois, couple was scheduled to make an appearance on the Maury Povich cheaters show they were arrested for fighting in a hotel in Connecticut.

Police were called to the Doubletree Hotel in Norwalk, after John Coley, 46, and Shantae McGhee-Brown, 25, began fighting.

The two were taken to the police station over the domestic dispute. The fight broke out during a discussion over the alleged affair Coley was having.

The couple was supposed to appear on the show over allegations that Coley was having an affair with McGhee-Brown’s mother.

Coley was ready to take a lie detector test the next day regarding the alleged relationship.

McGhee-Brown confessed to police that she threw a vase and broke a table in the hotel room on the third floor.

Both were held overnight on $100,000 bond and were charged with disorderly conduct and criminal mischief. McGhee-Brown was also charged with interfering with an officer.

Both were given orders of protection to stay away from each other.
