Joe Simpson

Charged with DUI

EXCLUSIVE

0815_joe_simpson_article_2Joe Simpson -- Jessica Simpson's dad -- has been charged with 2 counts of DUI stemming from an August 4th arrest ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Simpson was popped at a DUI checkpoint in Sherman Oaks, CA earlier this month ... and blew .12 on the breathalyzer test.

Now, we've learned ... the L.A. City Attorney has filed 2 misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence against Papa Joe ... which carry a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail.

If convicted on both counts, Joe COULD face up to 36 months probation and a $1,000 fine -- but as a first-time offender, it's highly unlikely he'll end up behind bars. He'll probably end up with a fine and probation.

Joe's case is scheduled to go before the judge later this month.

He seems like a douche bag for some reason. All he is missing is a Ed Hardy shirt.

Dear God.....tell my why Christians are such frauds. What's that you say? You don't exist. Well, that would make all the Christians a bunch of foolish blind-followers.
