Joe Simpson

Jessica's Dad

ARRESTED for DUI

EXCLUSIVE

Joe Simpson -- Jessica Simpson's father -- was arrested for DUI in L.A. ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement sources, 54-year-old Joe was busted on Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks on August 4.

We're told LAPD cops pulled Joe's car over around 10 PM ... and during the stop, officers got the feeling he was intoxicated and ultimately cuffed the famous pop and took him to the pokey.

Joe was booked and spent the rest of the night behind bars. He was released without having to post bail at 9:41 the following day.

The case has not been sent over to prosecutors in the L.A. City Attorney's Office yet, but if criminal charges are filed, it's likely Joe will not get any jail time since it's his first offense.  He'll probably end up with a big fat fine -- something his daughter will have no problem paying.

Denials will be issued within 12 hours - watch. It was Ambien, or Doctor prescribed medication.

Actual Joe Simpson quote from interview with GQ in 2004:
'Jessica never tries to be sexy … She just is sexy. If you put her in a T-shirt or you put her in a bustier, she’s sexy in both. She’s got double D’s! You can’t cover those suckers up!'

Get your sh*t together. You're a new grandfather. Act like an adult instead of a drunken 24 yr old.

He and his wife both let all their Christian values go out the window when they moved with their daughter to LA. He is whoring his daughter out every chance he gets and his wife runs around with her boobs falling out of her blouse.

Pimp Daddy / Good Christian drinking and driving? I'm shocked. How irresponsible and unGodly it is for someone like him to get behind a wheel of a car drunk and put OTHER people's lives in danger. LOSER

Who gets arrested because the cops "get a FEELING they are intoxicated"? What, they use their "Spidey Power"? End game, he got busted. Still remember him for his raving about his daughter boobies. Crrreeepy.

He got drunk because he was sad that his fantasy of marrying his daughter Jessica is being crushed

Nothing will happen to him, but if it was you or I we would lose our license and wouldn't be allowed to drive.
