Four men were arrested in Stockton, Calif. Wednesday in an Operation Ceasefire sweep, and with them four guns were seized as well, but the news making its way around the Internet is not of felony weapon charges, but of one of the arrestees good looks.
Since his arrest and mugshot release, 30-year-old Jeremy Meeks has caught the eye of many single ladies on the Internet.
Within a 24-hour timespan, his photo, shared by the Stockton Police Department on Facebook, had 5,000 likes and 3,700 comments.
Dubbed the “sexy mugshot,” Meeks’ photo took the Internet by storm, with some men and women even calling to pitch in to pay his $900,000 bail.
People even turned his mugshot into a Calvin Klein ad.
Meeks was arrested along with three other men on felony weapons charges. None of their mugshots received half as much attention.
