STOCKTON, Ca. Female Facebookers are apparently swooning over the picture of a dreamy eyed stranger. There's only one problem with the online lothario, he's behind bars!
This mugshot of 30-year-old Jeremy Meeks had more than 13,000 likes and garnered more than 3,000 comments in less than 24 hours. Meeks is a repeat offender in California, he's currently charged with six felony counts of street terrorism and weapons charges in Stockton, but that doesn't seem to faze his admirers. One Facebook comment reads: "O-m-g he's waaaay too sexy to go in a cell -- bring him to me, I'll lock him up." Another writes "being that sexy is obviously illegal." One commenter even suggested donating money to spring him. His bail is set at $900,000. He's due back in court Friday.
