Joe Simpson

Jessica's Dad

ARRESTED for DUI

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.

He wasn't intoxicated on alcohol, drugs, or pills. His mind drifted off for another minute on his daughter's ta-ta's and it made him all dreamy and goofy inside.

I don’t see anything wrong with the guy going out and having a drink or two . he would probably be the first one to admit that we all ain’t perfect all the time !

When are you brain-dead freaks going to realize that religions are a scam, and the followers, Like Pastor Joseph Simpson, are just frauds. There is not one true Christian on the planet, because all the information they have been fed has been manipulated throughout time. Most of them still make it up as they go along.

This disgusting man. How does Jessica's mom stay with a "pastor" that wants to have sex with his own daughter-constantly.
Christianity has got to be the most perverted religion out there.
