It looks like Jeremy Meeks has had a whole bunch of practice taking the perfect mugshot.
Becoming the hottest, modelesque felon ever in the history of the Internet doesn’t come easy! Anyone that’s taken a selfie knows that it takes a few tries to find your light and lock in the perfect angle.
Apparently, mugshots are no different! TMZ.com reports that Jeremy took a few “test shots” (that actually aren’t as cute) before he landed the perfect one. He’s been in prison twice before his 2014 arrest.
Back in 2002, when he had an afro, Jeremy was charged with robbery and corporal injury to a minor after he jumped 16-year-old. He copped a plea deal, adimitting that he was a Crip, and did two years in a California prison.
Jeremy later moved to Spokane, Washington, but he returned to lockup in 2007 on charges of identity theft and resisting arrest. Security guards at a sporting goods store caught him trying to steal a package of pellets, and Jeremy threatened them by screaming, “I’ll f*ck you all up!”
The guards pepper sprayed him before calling authorities. Jeremy was convicted and sentenced to more time behind bars.
Jeremy, of course, got out, but now he’s facing charges for weapons and street terrorism.
In current news, Jeremy’s wife (yes, the cutie is married and a father of two) is reportedly furious that his mugshot has gone viral. He was arraigned on 11 felony counts Friday, two days after his photo went viral, CBS Sacramento reported, but his wife didn’t attend the arraignment. “She’s upset. She’s furious,” Meeks’ friend Simone Johnson told the TV station. “Her man’s in there, and people are taking it as a joke.” Another friend, Rajanique Davis, added “It’s ridiculous. People are making jokes when this is not funny at all.”
Meeks is due back in court next week. Joke’s over.
