Joe Simpson, the father of Jessica Simpson, was slapped with an arrest August 4 for driving under the influence
of the holy spirit!
Caught on Ventura Blvd in Sherman Oaks, cops pulled the 54-year-old over around 10pm. Suspecting him of boozin' and cruisin' they slapped the cuffs on him and gave him a deluxe night behind bars.
Then, at 9:41am the next day, he posted bail and got the hell on outta there! …guess the bedding wasn't up to par!
Since this is his first offense, he probably won't go to jail if any charges are filed. He'll get a fine slapped on the wrist and be free to go back to church … or more likely managing his children's careers!
