Joe Simpson: Arrested for DUI

Joe Simpson was arrested for DUI around 10PM on Saturday (August 4) in Sherman Oaks, Calif.

The 54-year-old father of Jessica Simpson was busted on Ventura Blvd.

Joe spent the night behind bars and was released the next day, according to TMZ.

Since this is Joe‘s first offense, he will likely not get any jail time but will have to pay a hefty fine.

“Responsibility has drastically changed my life,” Jessica tweeted later in the evening. “Saturday night drink of choice…. WATER! :)”

  • TWS (Typing While Sleepy)

    Did Joe Simpson type this while drunk? (TWD). He spent the night there and was released “NEXT month”?! Did he come out looking like a dog? Explains the difference in time.

  • Danuuu

    Well, well, well, whaddaya know Papa Joe?

  • Kee

    the only reason i’m increibly shocked is cause isnt he supposed to be a priest or something?

  • Priests

    Throughout history priests have done a lot of crazy stuff. So I’m not shocked.

    Plus, he’s pretty young! Only 54 and Jessica’s 32 so he was only 22 when she was born. Maybe this is his middle life crisis?

  • Mikaela

    Ironic to think that this man controlled his daughters life as much as possible and sudenly he’s the one behind bars

    For him, being known as a drunk driver is an upgrade from being known as an incestuous pervert.

    ‘Jessica never tries to be sexy … She just is sexy. If you put her in a T-shirt or you put her in a bustier, she’s sexy in both. She’s got double D’s! You can’t cover those suckers up!’

    Both father and daughter are drunks.

  • -a

    @Lauren: ashley or jessica? (btw i heard that pete wentz always trolls the blogs when it’s something about him or the simpson family)

  • Ur-Big-fat-asses

    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 !

  • Lauren

    @-a: Jessica

  • lori

    Probably made the same mistake that a lot of people do. Having 1 or 2 drinks and thnking he was still ok to drive. Its very common. Many who wouldn’t dream of driving while sh!T faced will drive after 1 or 2 drinks. 1 is too many if you’re going to drive. Just like talking on the phone or texting or anything else that distracts you….a car is a weapon if you’re not thinking clearly.

    He had to get drunk to burn the image of Jessica’s fat a ss out of his mind.

  • KissThis

    Freakin hilarious!!

  • thighmegatampon

    Wow that’s not embarrassing at all! Douchey pic makes it worse.

  • Louise

    America needs to start cracking down on DUI drivers. First offense, nothing happens (except perhaps killing someone). In Europe he would not be driving for quite some time.
