Sorry, ladies. Hot mug shot guy Jeremy Meeks is married.

The 30-year-old convicted felon, who's currently facing felony weapons charges, is not an eligible bachelor, much to the dismay of thousands of Internet users who've been going gaga for Meeks since his "sexy" mug shot was posted on the Stockton Police Department's Facebook page on Wednesday following his arrest.

Speaking to a local Sacramento news station about his new Internet fame, Meeks said he learned of his viral mug shot from his wife. "Well, I appreciate [the attention], but I want [fans] to know that this is really not me," Meeks said from jail. "I'm not some kingpin."

Meeks has been the subject of web fame for the past few days. Internet users have been fawning over his looks and his mug shot has even inspired a disturbing #FelonCrushFriday meme on Twitter with users posted their own altered versions of Meeks' pic.

In addition to the Twitter meme, Meeks' mug shot on the Stockton Police Department Facebook page has garnered almost 20,000 comments and nearly 69,000 likes.

We'd like to remind you that Meeks (who comes in at 6' 1" tall and 170 pounds, for those interested) is a convicted felon with a teardrop tattoo under his left eye (for those of you who don't know what teardrop tattoos are said to signify, read this). But if you'd like to take him on a date, his bail is set at $900,000.
