Jessica Simpson Goes To Jail – To Bail Out Drunk Pal

UPDATE: Mary Phillips has now been released from custody and given a citation.  Jessica Simpson did not return.

Jessica Simpson went to jail Friday morning in West Hollywood, California — but, not to worry, she herself was not in any legal trouble.

Simpson was ready to pay her $250 bail, until deputies told her “she (Phillips) was too drunk to go home and needed to stay at the Sheriff’s jail until she sobers up.” So Jessica left the scene.
