Joe Simpson

Pleads Not Guilty to DUI

Joe Simpson insists he was NOT driving drunk last month before his DUI arrest ... pleading not guilty today in L.A. court, TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Papa Joe was busted at a DUI checkpoint in Sherman Oaks, CA ... and blew .12 on the breathalyzer.

The L.A. City Attorney subsequently charged Joe with two misdemeanor counts of DUI -- and last month, a judge ordered him not to drink any booze while he remained out on bail.

If convicted on both counts, Joe could face up to a year in jail -- but as a first-time offender, he probably won't end up behind bars. He'll most likely end up with a fine and probation.

He's due back in court in October.

Joe Simpson is a sick perv. I still remember him talking about Jessica's breasts. This guy should go back to Texas. He went from being a "man of God" to this.

Don't sweat the "don't drink" order, Joe. You and your brother Homer are always welcome at Moe's.

IF convicted on both counts, Joe could face up to a year in jail [don't believe it] -- but as a first-time offender, white and a celebrity he won't end up behind bars. He'll most likely end up with a slap on the wrist.

He wasn't drinking alcohol, he was eating beer flavored pretzels. What are they going to do, claim the Breathalyzer was broke? Another dumbass in a long line of dumbasses.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do, Read More

The South is full of huckster preachers like him. Praising the Lord on one side of his mouth and pimping his daughter Jessica's DD cups from the other. Keep your gin and Jesus close, Joe.

He's so full of himself. And Jessica doesn't seem to be that bright either. Guess it runs in the family.
