Joe's case has not been sent over to prosecutors in the L.A. City Attorney's Office yet, according to TMZ. He will likely not be sent to jail, as this is his first offense.

A former Baptist minister and psychologist, Joe -- married to Tina -- became a grandfather for the second time when Jessica, 32, gave birth to daughter Maxwell Drew (with fiance Eric Johnson, 32) on May 1, 2012. "Beautiful baby girl," Joe tweeted. "What a miracle!" Joe's younger daughter, Ashlee, 27, has a 3-year-old son, Bronx, with ex-husband Pete Wentz, 33.
