Just a few hours after the Stockton Police Department posts his mug shot onto their Facebook page on June 18, it had thousands of ‘likes.’ But it turns out he’s married and has a son, sorry ladies!
Jeremy Meeks, 30, has become an overnight celebrity, literally! But let’s not forget that he was arrested on weapons charges and previously served nine years behind bars for Grand Theft. But now that the world is so interested in the man with the teardrop tattoo, we can share a bit more information on this new celebrity felon and his son.
Jeremy Meeks’ Son Revealed After Mug Shot Goes Viral
Jeremy’s mom posted this photo of him and his son to a page GoFundMe, where she’s trying to raise $25,000 for his bail.
She wrote a message saying: “He has a job and … He was on his way to work. With no gang affiliations as per two of the charges. He has old tattoos..which causes him to be stereotyped. He’s my son and he is so sweet. Please help him to get a fair trial or else he’ll be railroaded.”
We have to say that his son is absolutely adorable and looks just like him!
Jeremy’s Mug Shot Goes Viral
This is what happened, the police department posted the photo of Jeremy to their Facebook page, along with everyone else they had arrested: “Jeremy Meeks, a 30 year old man, convicted felon, arrested for felony weapon charges.”
Currently, Jeremy’s pic has more than 29,000 likes — that’s a ton! He was interviewed while in jail and seemed pretty shocked when he was told about becoming such a celebrity! But it appears his first concern is his family and getting out of jail to spend time with his son.
