Looks like women do love bad boys.
A mug shot of convicted felon Jeremy Meeks exploded on the Internet Wednesday, when the Stockton, Calif. Police Department posted his picture on their Facebook page to raise awareness of his crime -- he was arrested on felony weapons charges -- not expecting the thousands of comments on his handsome face.
The photo in question – which prominently features his blue eyes and enviable bone structure -- has already received over 7,000 shares and over 21,000 likes on Facebook.
Just some of the amusing comments?
"He forgot to kidnap me! But don't you worry officers; I have handcuffs at home," one woman wrote.
"All I think he has done is stealing my heart, dangggg," another commented.
Easy though, ladies -- because besides being a convicted felon, he's also married.
"I just visited my wife and she said I like, blew up all over Facebook," Jeremy Meeks told KXTV from jail Thursday. "I just want them to know that this is really not like me, I'm not some kingpin."
Meeks is currently being held in the San Joaquin County Jail on $900,000 bail.
