Washington, August 11 (ANI): Jessica Simpson's father Joe Simpson was charged with drunk driving in Los Angeles last Saturday.
According to law enforcement sources, the singer's dad was caught on Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks on August 4, TMZ.com reported.
LAPD cops had pulled his car over at around 10 pm and during the stop, they got the feeling that 54-year-old Simpson was intoxicated and ultimately handcuffed him and took him to jail.
He was booked and spent the rest of the night behind bars and was released without having to post any bail at 9:41 the following day.
The case has not been sent over to prosecutors in the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office yet, but if the criminal charges are filed, it's likely that he will not be getting any jail time and will just have to pay a heavy fine, as this is his first offense. (ANI)
