Mugshot goes viral for good looking perp

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Usually the only time you take a close look at a mug shot is to try to link the person to a crime -- or to know what an accused criminal looks like. But a mug shot of a handsome Northern California man arrested on felony weapons charges has caused some to look at him as a potential suitor. Jeremy Meeks was arrested earlier this week -- and the Stockton Police Department plastered his mug shot on its Facebook page, along with those of others who were nabbed.

But the shot featuring Meeks' high cheek bones, angular face and blue eyes has gotten tens of thousands of "likes" and drawn more than 10,000 comments -- and has even been shared. One person commented: "Momma, I'm in love with a criminal." A comment from someone who focused on Meeks' criminal history instead allowed that he "may be a tad bit cute," but with six felonies to his name, "he ain't that cute."
