STOCKTON, Calif. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A northern California inmate is getting viral attention for his mugshot.

Jeremy Meeks was arrested last Wednesday, by the Stockton Police Department after he was found with a gun--which he is not legally allowed to have because he's a felon.

The police department put his mugshot on Facebook just two days ago, and users started to go crazy.

As of this morning, the mugshot has more than 4,000 shares, and nearly 38,000 likes.

Meeks' good looks have traveled the globe, and his mug has been pasted on websites, including TMZ, USA Today, and internationally on Peruvian and Australian websites.

Meeks says he's shocked he's become so popular.

Stockton Police have also noticed the attention and want to remind people Meeks is a felon, who spent 9 years in prison for grand theft.
