Andrea Quanita Simpson, Early Ugly Mugshot Favorite, Allegedly Sliced Up Mom with Knife

Despite it only being Monday, we're putting our faith in the notion that Moxley won't come up with a more worthy miscreant as the week marches on so it can be confidently declared that Andrea Quanita Simpson has won the Ugly Police Mugshot of the Week.

The 18-year-old, who apparently has a history of mental illness, is accused of repeatedly stabbing her mother.

Costa Mesa Police were called around 7 p.m. Friday to an apartment at 419 Hamilton St., where a friend had found 51-year-old Alice Simpson with multiple stab wounds to her chest, arms and back. She was taken to Western Medical Center Santa Ana with injuries that are not considered life threatening, according to a statement from police Lt. Mark Manley.

Responding officers discovered the mother had been in an argument with her daughter, Andrea Simpson, who allegedly stabbed the victim with a kitchen knife before fleeing the apartment.

The Huntington Beach police helicopter spotted the younger Simpson walking near Victoria Street and Newport Boulevard, where officers on the ground found her and placed her under arrested for suspected assault with a deadly weapon without incident.

She still had the kitchen knife on her, according to Manley's statement, which noted the accused attacker was held in lieu of $25,000 bail.
