Reports say Simms was stopped by police about 2am, and had red eyes, a flushed face, and wasn't speaking clearly. Apparently he has since disputed the arrest and told the AP that the police misunderstood comments he made about smoking cigarettes at the time of the arrest.
Simms was released from jail without bail today and is due back in court on August 23. He called the case "very weak" and did not enter a plea.
