Jessica Simpson's father and manager, Joe Simpson, was arrested for drunken driving in Los Angeles last Saturday, TMZ reports.

According to the website, citing sources in law enforcement, the 54-year-old (also dad to actress-singer Ashlee Simpson) was picked up on Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks, handcuffed and taken to jail, where he spent the night.

The first-time DUI offender was released without bail; no charges have been filed.
