Ashlee and Jessica Simpson’s Father Jailed for Night

Joe Simpson, father of Ashlee and Jessica Simpson, was arrested on DUI (driving under the influence) in Los Angeles, reports the Huffington Post.

Police pulled him over after his driving made them suspicious. He was taken to jail after the Sherman Oaks arrest.

Simpson is a former preacher, but currently manages his daughter’s careers. He has no prior record of any type, which is likely to help him in court. He was released from custody without having to post bail and will likely only receive a fine for his behavior.

The 54-year-old grandfather of one did spend the night in jail to think over his DUI. The likelihood of him returning to jail after court is very low. A judge will make the final decision though. Simpson has been an exemplary citizen in the past, so a judge will be more willing to give him a second chance.
