(AP) Los Angeles prosecutors are charging the father of singers Jessica and Ashley Simpson with two counts of drunken driving after his arrest earlier this month.


City attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan said Wednesday that 54-year-old Joe Simpson faces a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail, 36 months of probation and a $1,000 fine.


He was arrested Aug. 4 after authorities say he registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent or above at a DUI checkpoint in the Sherman Oaks area.


The charges were filed Tuesday. Simpson is due for arraignment Aug. 30 in a Van Nuys court.


Simpson is a former minister. He helped make stars of his two daughters by managing their singing careers.
