In the US, you can browse mugshots. Not just celebrity mugshots, but actual real people's mugshots, because it's the land of the brave and the free and you just are allowed. What happens, then, when one of the felons on a State's rundown of criminals – listed on Facebook– turns out to be a 100% bona fide hottie? He goes viral, that's what.

Jeremy Meeks is a convicted felon – he's spent nine years in jail already for grand theft – and was most recently arrested in Stockton, California, on felony weapons charges. After his arrest, he faces five weapons charges and one gang charge.

However, what's most noticeable about him from his mugshot is that he is beautiful. With piercing blue/grey eyes, full lips, delicate tattoos and cheekbones sharp enough to cut diamonds, he looks like he could have been any of the better-looking blokes walking on the London Collections: Men catwalks earlier this week.

Now, we really wouldn't want to fancy someone who's been arrested and faces so many charges and has been put away for so very long before, so it's almost lucky that he's got a wife anyway. ‘I just visited my wife and she said I just blew up all over Facebook,' he told an interviewer via a phone from jail.

When told just how many fans he has – the photo has 37,995 likes on Facebook, 4,036 shares and 12,167 comments – he told News10 ABC: 'Well, I appreciate that but I just want them to know that this is really not me. I'm not some kingpin.'

His side of the story is that he's guilty in all of this, but has left his gangland past behind him.

Now, if he isn't charged and tried and condemned to more jail time, can someone get this guy a role in a Lana Del Rey video already? Or, as one woman put it: 'Why is he breaking the law when he should be making millions modelling? Wowzas.'
