Jeremy Meeks was arrested by Stockton Police Department for illegally possessing firearms and ammo, carrying a loaded gun in public and for criminal activity within a gang. He has also been charged more specifically with ‘street terrorism.’ His bail has been set at $900,000

Stockton police posted the mug shot on their Facebook page, where it garnered over 15,000 likes and thousands of comments and shares.

It seems that the 30-year-old has sent the Internet into a frenzy, with woman all over the world lusting after the criminally gorgeous face and his arresting blue eyes.

Women around the globe commented on the photo as it went viral on social media.

One woman wrote: ‘What is he guilty of?! First Degree Sexiness?!’

Those swooning over the repeat offender are even calling for funds to be raised to pay off his bail so he can walk the streets again.

One lustful woman commented on the picture: ‘He didn't know any different. I could turn him into a "model" citizen. Where can I pay his bail?’

We think that Calvin Klein might be queueing up to sign him once he's done his time!


Sorry ladies, but we have found out that the model-esque criminal has a wife!

Speaking from jail where he awaits trial, he said: ‘I heard from my wife about all the things people are saying on Facebook.’

Jeremy spoke from prison

‘I appreciate that, but this isn’t me, I’m not some kingpin.’

Though he claims he is no longer a gangster, police are reminding ‘fans’ that he is a felon who has spent 9 months in prison for grand theft auto.
