Joe Simpson, the father of singer-actress Jessica, was arrested for DUI in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, the incident took place around 10PM on August 4, when Simpson was pulled over by LAPD officers on Ventura Blvd. He was then handcuffed after officers suspected that he was intoxicated.

Simpson, 54, subsequently spent the night in prison before he was released without bail the following morning, at 9:41AM.

No word yet on whether Simpson will face criminal charges. TMZ adds that because this is his first charge, he will likely face a fine instead.


For years, Simpson has managed his daughter Jessica’s lucrative career, which has included everything from platinum-selling CDs to clothing lines.

He also has another daughter, Ashlee, who has dabbled in music, acting and reality television, to various degrees of success.
