Is it illegal to be this sexy? When police say this man was arrested on felony weapons charges, are they talking about those piercing blue eyes?
Jeremy Meeks, 30, was swept up in the Stockton, Calif. Police Department's "Operation Ceasefire" sting in response to a recent wave of gang-related robberies and shootings, has the most popular mugshot ever posted to the police department's Facebook page.
Meeks has a strong jawline, the perfect amount of stubble, and 5 felony charges for weapons and gang activity. He's being held on $900,000 bail, which some of his adoring fans would gladly pay.
"If he gets his life together he could make millions as a model. Omg," wrote a typical commenter on the police department's Facebook post, which now has 55,000 likes.

Sorry, ladies (and some dudes) of Facebook: He's married.
He took the interview opportunity to explain that police found a pistol in his trunk, but he's "no longer a gangster." Meeks previously spent 9 years in prison for grand theft, and he says the teardrop tattoo on his face is because "he's done some things in his past that he's not proud of."
