Jeremy Meeks’ star-quality mugshot taken after his arrest this week on felony weapons charges has become an Internment sensation, with more than 89,000 'likes' on Facebook as of Saturday evening.
The 30-year-old career criminal has become an object of lust for women the world over who took to Facebook and Twitter lavishing praise on his high cheekbones, full lips and piercing blue eyes.
But Meeks’ spouse and the mother of his 3-year-old son is not amused by the collective swooning over her photogenic husband.
‘She's furious,’ Meeks' friend Simone Johnson said.
‘Her man is in there and people are taking it as a joke, thinking it’s funny talking about his looks.’
Officer Joseph Silva, a spokesman for the Stockton Police Department, which sparked the mugshot craze Wednesday after sharing Meeks' booking photo on its Facebook page, was surprise by the worldwide attention.
‘I have not seen that many likes for a photo before,’ he said.
Silva called Meeks ‘one of the most violent criminals in the Stockton area,’ though he would not elaborate on the crimes that Meeks is believed to have committed.
'It's been a long term investigation over many weeks and Mr Meek's gang was identified as the most violent and active gang in the area,' Public Information Officer Silva told MailOnline. 'Two of his charges are gang related.'
Despite this extensive rap sheet and his part in local gangs, Meeks and his family still insist that he is not involved in criminal activity.
His mother, Katherine Angier, has insisted that her son is innocent and has even set up a GoFundMe page to raise $25,000 to get him a fair trial.
Angier apparently has been in trouble with the law for offenses including drugs, aiding and abetting a criminal, according to records.
The sordid suggestions also continue to appear on the Stockton police's Facebook page, where the felon's photo was liked more 20,000 times in less than 24 hours.
'He needs to be a model,' wrote Bettina Jones. 'I would buy whatever he's selling!'
Meeks was charged with illegally possessing firearms and ammo, carrying a loaded firearm in public and criminal street gang activity.
The repeat offender is being held on $900,000 bail, but perhaps not for long. There's talk amongst the commenters of raising the funds to set him free.
But not everyone's a fan.
'$900,000 in bail and 6 felonies,' Amber Gomes wrote. 'You ladies are desperate.'
