Joe Simpson, the 54-year-old former minister and manager/father of Jessica and Ashlee Simpson, was arrested for DUI in L.A. back on August 4.
During the traffic stop, on Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks, officers got the feeling he was intoxicated and ultimately made an arrest.
Joe Simpson spent the rest of that night cooling off in jail.
He was released without bail at 9:41 the following day. If charges are filed, Simpson will not get any jail time since it's his first offense.
Expect something more in line with probation, community service and a sizable fine ... along with a heaping dose of embarrassment.
No comment yet from any of the Simpson clan.
