Joe Simpson was driving with a .12 blood alcohol level when he was popped last week for DUI — law enforcement sources tell our sources.
our sources broke the story … Simpson was busted August 4 in the San Fernando Valley. We”re told he was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint on Ventura Blvd. Although we don”t know where Simpson had allegedly been drinking, we”re told the checkpoint was two miles from Casa Vega, a Mexican restaurant frequented by Jessica Simpson — she”s a regular. BTW, they make a mean margarita.
Joe”s .12 is well above what is considered legally drunk in California — .08.
We reached out to Joe … so far, no comment.
