Joe Simpson Denies Driving Drunk

He’s best known as the man behind Jessica and Ashlee Simpson's careers, but Joe Simpson is quickly getting a reputation as a troublemaker.

According to a report, Papa Joe has vehemently denied that he’d had anything to drink before being pulled over by the Sherman Oaks cops last month during his court date today (September 13).

However, police records indicate that Simpson blew a .12 on the breathalyzer when he was pulled over at a DUI checkpoint, prompting the LA City Attorney to charge him with two misdemeanor counts of DUI.

Given that this is Joe’s first offense, he’ll likely get a fine and probation for his misdeeds if found guilty. Simpson will appear in court next month to continue the case.
