Meet Jeremy Meeks, the convicted felon whose mug shot went viral after the Stockton Police Department shared the snap on Facebook—garnering 63,000 likes (and counting)!
Comments on the page show support for the 30-year-old—who was arrested on five weapon changes and one gang charge in the San Francisco area:
“Wow. That is one good looking mug shot!” one person boasts.
While another commenter declares, “Momma, I’m in love with a criminal.”
“Holy hell I would arrest him too... hottest bad boy I’ve ever seen,” another writes.
The messages of support go on and on (as of press time, there are more than 18,000 comments on Facebook)—despite Stockton Police Department spokesperson, Officer Joseph Silva, calling him “one of the most violent criminals in the Stockton area.”
Jeremy has another avid supporter — his mom, Katherine Angier, who has started a GoFundMe page to help her son get a free trial.
According to her page, he was on his way to work when the arrest occurred—she adds discrimination against his tattoos is partially to blame, though Ms. Angier insists he’s no longer associated with any gangs.
Jeremy's sister tells TMZ he only carries a gun to protect himself because of his former affiliation, adding he’s been a practicing Christian for 7 years.
He may be behind bars now—but how does his glamour shot compare to these seven other hot mug shots of the rich and famous?
