Arrestee’s ’Handsome’ Mug Shot Goes Viral
A mug shot of a Northern California man arrested on felony weapons charges has gone viral on social media, attracting more than 33,000 "likes" and drawing comments praising his high cheekbones, chiseled face and striking blue eyes.
Jeremy Meeks, 30, a felon, was arrested Wednesday on five weapons charges and one gang charge, according to Officer Joseph Silva, a spokesman for the Stockton Police Department.
No previous arrest photo has garnered so much positive attention since the department set up the Facebook page in March 2012, Silva told The Associated Press.
"I have not seen that many likes for a photo before," he said.
By late Thursday, Meeks’ arrest photo had garnered more than 33,000 "likes," and 10,400 comments, and had been shared more than 3,300 times.
"Wow. That is one good looking mug shot!" one person wrote.
"Momma, I’m in love with a criminal," another joked.
