Rolling with a .12

Joe Simpson
was driving with a .12 blood alcohol level when he was popped last week for DUI -- law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

TMZ broke the story ... Simpson was busted August 4 in the San Fernando Valley.  We're told he was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint on Ventura Blvd. Although we don't know where Simpson had allegedly been drinking, we're told the checkpoint was two miles from Casa Vega, a Mexican restaurant frequented by Jessica Simpson -- she's a regular. BTW, they make a mean margarita.

0810_jessica_simpson_casa_vegaJoe's .12 is well above what is considered legally drunk in California -- .08.

We reached out to Joe ... so far, no comment.

If they're not gonna' face the consequences the rest of us face, why can't they go to 'celebrity prison' where everything'll be televised? We could watch 'em detox and get into fist fights, form celebrity gangs... that'd be neat.

News flash Baptist Minister gets drunk - gets DWI arrest - Packs a .12 gauge...Unmarried daughter has baby out of wedlock and Super Sizes herself.

Playing mgr for daughter's pays better than the ministry but the principles are the same.

.12 is the range where you are actually a better driver, or is that .21 where you're a better driver? Either way, it's in the zone.

In Joes defense he is currently being a god father and is dieting with his daughter. (The Big one) That's right! Joe know Jennie too. You see people who care, he only ate 4 meals that day instead of the 6 and 2 snacks that your suppose to. Know you understand? He drank on an empty stomach. I feel bad for Joe. Don't you?

Amazing what a little "celebrity" and money will do to a pastor and his family. Thinking the 'eye of an needle/camel' principle.

I wouldn't call this dude a celebrity.
Did anything happen to Jessica's next door neighbor or her Uncle Charlie on her mother's side?

Celebrities Suck    

I remember watching Newlyweds and Jes and nick would fart a lot. Maybe it's the Mexican food, whenever I ate mex food it would give me gas. So Jes if you want to fart less stop eating fatty foods.

Casa Verga has been a lousy restaurant for 30 years, but you can get drunk there in the dank, dark, roach infestedness where the women look so much better than in good light
