Jessica Simpson’s 54-year-old father, Joe, was arrested in Los Angeles last weekend for driving under the influence.

According to TMZ, Joe Simpson was stopped on Aug. 4 at around 10 p.m. on Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks, Calif. After speaking to the former youth minister, authorities believed that he was intoxicated and placed him under arrest. Joe was cuffed and taken to the police station, where he was held until the next morning.
 
Oddly enough, in the wee hours of Aug. 5 — hours after Joe was arrested — his daughter Jessica sent out a cryptic tweet about her new outlook on responsibility and drinking.
 
“Responsibility has drastically changed my life,” Jessica tweeted. “Saturday night drink of choice.... WATER! :).”
