Jessica Simpson's dad faces misdemeanor charge

Joe Simpson, dad to entertainers Jessica and Ashlee Simpson, has been arrested on a misdemeanor charge, CNN confirmed.

TMZ reports that the misdemeanor was for allegedly driving under the influence.

According to the site, Simpson, 54, was stopped by Los Angeles police around 10 p.m. Saturday, and officers suspected during the stop that Simpson had been drinking.

Los Angles police officers arrested Simpson and booked him just after midnight Sunday. According to an arrest report from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, Simpson was released around 9:41 a.m. Sunday.

Interestingly enough, new mom and Weight Watchers spokeswoman Jessica Simpson spent her Saturday evening guzzling a beverage. She tweeted after midnight Sunday, "Responsibility has drastically changed my life! Saturday night drink of choice.... WATER! :)"

CNN is pursuing comment from Joe Simpson and additional information from Los Angeles police.

    Will someone tell me what this girl has done to earn the media coverage of her life? Horrible actress, NOT a great singer and known for her weight fluctuations more than actual talent. Ditto for her sister who embarrassed herself so badly on SNL years ago.

      We all make mistakes and Nobody is perfect Jessica Simpson and her family are blessed on this earth. I liked Ashlee Simpson's album if we can put up with Britney Spears lip Syncing why not Ashlee?

    Wow! So quick to make a judgment here. I don't see anything even remotely wrong with this pic. I have been molested & it doesn't resemble anything like this. Maybe that's why we should leave this up to God to judge when that time comes....

    I don't see any of this idiotic nonsense the losers above are talking about. What do you mean, "Bugs Bunny Smile?" She's a beautiful lady, and her daddy is only leaning over a little so the two of them can get in the same picture. Maybe he did have a drink, is he the only person who would dare to drink? It doesn't say he's drunk. He's not going to molest his grown daughter who's a mother of a new baby. Get a life you morons.

      Red & ah did not pick this picture. They were commenting on how it "looked". How about you lighten up? I'm sure they were kidding around. I would like to comment on your "retarded" comment, though. How shallow are you for using that phrase? You do realize that word is not politically correct, don't you. Maybe you should crawl out from under your rock!

      regretfully I have to agree with you 100 percent. It doesn't look like he is pinching her – it looks like he has a solid handful of her behind. She seems to be thinking – wooo wait until others can't see.
