Here's another contender for hot mugshot of the year. A woman arrested for allegedly carrying a loaded firearm in her car has stolen hearts on the internet - with some admirers even claiming they'll post her bail money. Suspected gang member Mirella Ponce, 20, was pulled over in California while allegedly traveling with a loaded firearm (pictured) her infant son, and two other suspected gang members. After her mugshot was released the photo was rapidly shared thousands of times, by gooey-eyed suitors on Facebook. "The only crime she committed was stealing my heart," wrote one man. Another commented: "Ima just go bail her out. Free this hot gangster chick". Some were also in admiration of the purple firearm Ms. Ponce was reportedly carrying: "I don't know what's cuter, her or this gun," wrote another Facebook user.
