UPDATE 6/24/14: Okay kids, here's what we know. On the legal end, Meeks is facing street terrorism and weapons charges, and in 2002 he was sent to prison for two years for beating a 16 year old. And that's just the top of Meeks' messed-up-but-kinda-sexy iceberg.
And for those of you who were hoping to make a love connection with the convicted felon (think about that sentence carefully, kids), we must inform you that he is married, with a child. Sorry.
Jeremy Meeks was one of four men arrested in Stockton, California on gunrunning charges during an Operation Ceasefire sweep on June 18. But his crimes are being largely overlooked by the general public, and it's because of how attractive he is in his mug shot (yes, you heard right). The Stockton Police Department posted the photo on their Facebook page, and all hell broke loose. So far, the mug shot has received over 12,000 likes and over 3,000 comments. People (mostly women) have been leaving messages such as, "What he get arrested for? Being sexy?!? Lmao!!!" and, "oh hey bae bae". The list goes on.
There even seem to be several comments in German (and I say that as someone who only speaks three words of German, so it's a coin toss, really. Suffice it to say that this photo has taken over the world).
What do you think? Is Mr. Meeks's sexy pic worthy of all the attention?
