Stockton Police Department
Well, in all fairness, he does have a nice face.
Women proved that they really do love their bad boys after Jeremy Meeks, a 30-year-old convicted felon who was arrested Wednesday on felony weapons charges during a sweep in the Weston Ranch area of Stockton, Calif., had his mug (pun intended) shared on the Internet.
After being booked, the Stockton Police Department posted Meeks' mug shot on their Facebook page to raise awareness of the crime and arrest. What they probably weren't expecting was the massive amount of likes and comments that were to follow, and it had nothing to do with the fact that a felon is off the streets and everything to do with the fact that the felon in question is hot.
His mug shot photo currently has over 21,000 likes, over 12,000 shares and over 5,000 comments that include things like "Hottttttt," "Omg come to mama," "He can kidnap me anyday... Hold me against my will lol" and "Holy hell i would arrest him too..hottest bad boy I've see."
Someone even set up a fan page for Meeks, who is being held in the San Joaquin County Jail on $900,000 bail.
While some may find these acts "desperate," it's true that Meeks does have handsome features—piercing blue eyes, a chiseled jaw line, perfect symmetry and he can clearly turn it on in front of the camera. Tyra Banks just might have declared him America's Next Top Model had he chosen that route in life (and not gotten those tattoos).
Buuuuuut he didn't.
