Jessica Simpson Rejected From Jail

Jessica Simpson did a good deed last night! She made a late night trip to the LA County Sheriff’s Department in the wee hours of the morning to try and bail a friend out of jail!

Jess’ makeup artist and friend Mary Phillips was arrested for disturbing the peace and being drunk in public outside the Sunset Tower Hotel. But poor Jess was turned away from trying to bail out her friend!

Deputy Aura Sierra tells Us Weekly, "She was arrested for being drunk in public, and she was not released to Jessica because you can't release someone who has not sobered up.

"They're going to release her a little later when she's sobered up. I don't know what time that will be. It could be a minimum of 6 to probably 8 hours.”

Simpson had been with Phillips earlier that night—she even posted a picture on her Twitter of them together with Ken Paves, and wrote, "sizzlin' with my peeps, pretty boy KP and Lil' Cholita [Phillips] ... look out yo!!"

Guess Phillips didn’t want the party to end!
