Meeks’ mug shot landed on the Internet in 2014 after his arrest in Stockton, CA for carrying a loaded firearm. Despite being in and out of prisons for more than a decade … thousands of admirers were drooling over the con, and modeling agencies were even lining up — y’know, just in case.

“I appreciate [the attention] but I just want them to know that this is really not me,” he said of the viral attention. “I’m not some kingpin.”

Meeks also has a wife and a son, and he served several years in prison for theft.
