(AP Photo/Dan Steinberg) (Newser) – At least this celebrity DUI arrest didn't involve any nudity: Joe Simpson, dad of Jessica and Ashlee, was busted in LA last weekend, TMZ reports today. He was pulled over around 10pm Saturday, and officers ended up taking him to jail when they began to suspect he was drunk. He spent the night there, but was released the next day without needing to post bail. No word yet on whether criminal charges will be filed; this would be Simpson's first offense.
