Jeremy Meeks: Mugshot of Alleged California Criminal Goes Viral on Facebook

Jeremy Meeks is becoming well-known after his mugshot was posted online by the Stockton Police Department.

Meeks, 30, was arrested on felony weapons charges after a sweep in the Weston Ranch area of the California city on Wednesday.

The police department posted the mugshot online, and it generated over 22,000 likes and 5,600 comments, many from women admiring his looks. 

The mugshots of the other three men arrested in the sweep did not generate much action, having less than 25 comments between them.

“OMGGG superrrrrr Delicious,” commented Adjutha Lambertina, while Michelle Asher Morales asked: “Can we be handcuffed together….lordy!!”

Amanda Sullivan added that it is “the most attractive looking mug shot I’ve ever seen!”

“It just proves that most people never rise to their true potential. And, that most of us are fooled by a pretty smile and nice eyes lol,” she added.

Others suggested that Meeks should become a model.

Meeks is being held in the San Joaquin County Jail on $900,000 bail.
