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.

If this man was your neighbor, you would be telling your kids to stay away from that creepy Mr. Simpson.

What does this have to do with Jessica ? Does it mean it's not interesting enough unless it's a celebrities relative ? well, you're right it isn't.

I thought he was supposed to be a pastor or something religious.... well as the Good Book says, you can't serve two masters [money/fame or God]. Looks like he chose the former and it's not working for him. Not to worry eventually he'll be doing public speaking [for a price] and write a book [$$$] confessing his misdeeds and work the god element into it to reel in the Christians.

Can't stand this fake family. He knows what size Jess's boobs are because he paid for them, the same ones that she claims are real. Some christian man he is, whoring his daughters and d.u.i.

We get it: Your daughter is famous, she's your meal ticket, and you love her tits. So do we. But you're a grown man and a FATHER. Stop acting like a 20-something douche bag and be a dad.

I think Jessica lives with her sperm donor. It always seemed that she and Joe had a thing going on. Remember how he bragged about how big her breasts were and called them "suckers?". He probably started drinking when he and Jessica broke up.

Let me see if I have this situation right - He is a Pastor & his daughter just had a baby & not married & she put on a TON of weight to have Weight Watchers hire her for 4 mil to lose. No wonder he is drinking. Jessica is a mess. Needs to groom herself & get out there & excerise.

I remember watching him on Newlyweds with his daughter and Nick Lachey. He went EVERYWHERE with them, and he was always ogling Nick AND his daughter's chest. This dude is a creepy whoremonger!
