(NEWSER) – If a life of crime doesn't work out for California man Jeremy Meeks—and since he's being held on felony weapons charges, it apparently isn't—a career as a model awaits. After his mugshot appeared on the Stockton Police Department's Facebook page, it attracted 30,000 likes and almost 10,000 comments from women and men dazzled by his good looks, reports News10. "Holy hell i would arrest him too ... hottest bad boy I've seen," wrote one commenter. "I would rehabilitate him so hard," cracked another.

Jeremy Meeks' family has come to his defense. According to TMZ, his mother, Katherine Angier, is trying to raise money to post his $900,000 bail and his sister says he only carries a gun because he used to be in a gang and needs to protect himself.
