Making headlines for the wrong reasons, Joe Simpson was recently arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI).

The father of star sisters Jessica and Ashlee Simpson was thought to have had one too many by officers who pulled him over in Sherman Oaks, California this past weekend (August 4).

According to TMZ, the former minister was cuffed and taken into custody following the stop - with the 54-year-old spending the night behind bars before being freed the next day.

The report adds that Papa Simpson's case has been handed over to prosecutors in the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office. Meanwhile, no comment has been made by the Simpson camp at the present time.
