Update - Hot Mugshot Guy -- Dreamy McMugshot (Jeremy Meeks)

Hot Mug Shot Guy's Mom Comes to His Defense -- He's No Gangster!

Jeremy Meeks -- aka Dreamy McMug Shot -- for sure does one thing well ... he makes good kids, and has a very loyal mom who says McMug is being stereotyped because of his old tattoos.

Meeks is currently being held on $900,000 bail for illegally possessing firearms and ammo, carrying a loaded firearm in public and criminal street gang activity.

His mother, Katherine Angier, is trying to raise money for bail using the website GoFundMe. She wrote, "Please help. My son was taken into custody on his way to work. He is a working man with a son. He is being stereotyped due to old tattoos."

She added, "He's my son and he is so sweet. Please help him to get a fair trial or else he'll be railroaded."

McMug's sister says... the only reason he carries guns is because he used to be in a gang and needs to protect himself. And she says, he's been a practicing Christian for 7 years.

Angier is hoping to raise $25,000 ... but as of this posting, she's only received $238.

The kid is 3 years old. The mother is McMug's wife. They have been married for 4 years.

Jeremy Meeks, 30, was arrested this week and Stockton, California police posted his mugshot to their Facebook as part of procedure Fewer than 48 hours later, the felon's face had gained a rabid fan following as over 320,000 people 'liked' the photo and nearly 60,000 had commented Facebook users are so enamored with the man in a mugshot posted to the Stockton, California page Wednesday that they liked the felon's police photo over 20,000 times in less than 24 hours.


The ice blue-eyed, strong-jawed likeness of Jeremy Meeks was just as quickly plastered across Twitter as thousands of social media users have themselves been the 30-year-old's undeniable good looks. Meeks, already a convicted felon, was hauled in as part of a gang police sweep, but he's the one sweeping internet denizens off their feet.

 The police puns continue on the Stockton Police Facebook page, where the photo had an unbelievable 5,800 comments by Thursday evening.

Most comments stuck to the obvious jokes:' What is he guilty of?! First Degree Sexiness?!' wrote Ashley Pruitt Carden. Others, like Rhonda Cee, saw a moneymaking opportunity. 'He'll probably be on next years prison calendar...Mr....EVERY MONTH!' she wrote. By far, one of the most thing to post was a comment about Meeks having missed his calling as a model. 'He needs to be a model,' wrote Bettina Jones. 'I would buy whatever he's selling!'

Meeks was charged with illegally possessing firearms and ammo, carrying a loaded firearm in public and criminal street gang activity, reports TMZ.

The repeat offender is being held on $900,000 bail, but perhaps not for long. 

There's talk amongst the commenters of raising the funds to set him free.

'He didn't know any different. I could turn him into a "model" citizen. Where can I pay his bail?' wrote Deborah Ann Mitchell.
