The father of Jessica Simpson was arrested on August 4 after he proved to be intoxicated when pulled over by police while driving in Los Angeles.
Simpson spent the night in jail and was bailed the following morning.
TMZ reports that the LA City Attorney has filed two misdemeanour counts of driving under the influence against Simpson this week.
If convicted, he could face up to six months in prison, 36 months of probation and a $1,000 fine.
Simpson will answer to the charges in front of a judge later this month.
