Joe Simpson was arrested for DUI in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, Jessica Simpson's 54-year-old father was pulled over on August 4 in Sherman Oaks, Calif., handcuffed and taken to jail after officers suspected that he was under the influence of alcohol.

Simpson reportedly spent the entire night behind bars after his 10:00 PM arrest, before being released the next morning. Criminal charges have yet to be filed but because Simpson has no previous offenses, if and when charges are filed TMZ reports that he will most likely just be slapped with a large fine.

Simpson isn't the only celebrity (dad) to be nabbed for drunk driving, as of late. A naked Randy Travis was charged with DWI Tuesday night after he crashed his car in Texas.
