Jeremy Meeks “Handsome” Mugshot Goes Viral

Submitted by on June 20, 2014 – 12:45 pmNo Comment

An alleged Northern California gang member is the newest celebrity on the Web. Jeremy Meeks was arrested this week on weapons and gang charges; when his mugshot was posted on the Facebook page of the Stockton Police Department, it garnered tens of thousands of likes, and comments praising his high cheekbones and blue eyes.

The post identified Meeks as a 30-year-old convicted felon, saying he was arrested for felony weapons charges as part of a multi-agency crackdown on shooting and robberies in the area.

Officer Joseph Silva, a spokesperson for the department, called Meeks “one of the most violent criminals in the Stockton area,” but would not say what Meeks’ prior convictions were.

In 2010, Florida woman Meagan Simmons similarly gained attention for an unintentionally attractive mugshot, snapped after the alluring blonde was arrested for DUI.
