STOCKTON, Calif – The mugshot of a man arrested this week in California is going viral, not because of the crimes the man is alleged to have committed but because of how allegedly ‘hot’ he is in the photo.

Four people were arrested as part of Operation Ceasefire in Stockton Wednesday reported FOX40 News.

30-year-old Jeremy Meeks, 22-year-old Terry Bailey, 18-year-old Jurzi Coleman and 44-year-old Joelin Coleman all face felony weapons charges and each had their mugshot released to the media.

But Meeks’ photo has sparked thousands of ‘likes’ and comments on Facebook in just a few hours.

Comments like “he’s hot”, “is it illegal to be that sexy?” and many more accompany his picture posted on FOX40′s and the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook pages.

Meanwhile Terry Bailey, who was arrested for the same crimes during the same police sweep, only had 14 “likes” and 4 comments.
