By now, I’m sure you’ve probably seen the amazingly hot mug shot of Mr. Jeremy Meeks, a 30-year-old, 6'1", 170-pound, allegedly dangerous package of yumminess, who has women crooning all over America. The previously convicted felon became the center of attention after gracing the Stockton, Calif., Police Department's Facebook page of arrested suspects on Wednesday. His dreamy eyes prompted admirers to register more than 15,000 comments, 60,000 likes and 7,000 shares in a span of 48 hours! Enthusiasts have even created fan pages in his honor.
Meeks was one of four men arrested in the Northern California city June 18 during a multiagency operation to curb shootings and robberies in the area, according to Stockton police. Interesting enough, the other men’s mug shots garnered little to no fanfare. Meek’s is currently being held on $900,000 bail in the San Joaquin County jail, facing five weapons charges and one gang charge. His arraignment is scheduled for this afternoon.
Just in case you want to learn a little more behind the captivating looks of Mr. Meeks aside from his criminal background—the police have declined to release his previous arrest record—we’ve put together some tidbits we thought you’d be interested in knowing.

What a hot mess.
