Hottest mugshot ever?

A picture of 30-year-old felon Jeremy Meeks on the Stockton Police Department Facebook page has gone viral because it's so "dreamy."

Meeks was arrested Wednesday on felony weapons charges during a sweep of the Western Ranch area of Stockton, police said.

While Stockton police posted his mug shot to share information about his arrest with the public, his chiseled features and piercing blue eyes proved to be a big hit with women.

A few seemed smitten by his eye teardrop tattoo.

As of Thursday afternoon, Meeks' photo had received more than 23,000 likes and nearly 6,000 comments, most of them describing him as "gorgeous," "dreamy," 'hot" and "incredibly handsome."

"I am in love with a criminal!" one woman posted.

Another asked: "Can I be your cellmate?"

Some suggested a career in modeling.

Someone has even started a Facebook fan page for Meeks, complete with a picture of a gun for a cover photo.
