Jeremy Meeks can't be the only good-looking guy behind bars in California. But he is the only one who went from Stockton gang-banger to international heartthrob overnight.
His mom is trying to parlay that into a get-out-of-jail jackpot. She's raised almost $4,000 online toward his million-dollar bail since Meeks' mug shot went viral last week after he was arrested on felony charges involving gangs and guns.
I am trying to understand how blue eyes, pouty lips and a tear-drop tattoo could spark such ardor among so many women in countries around the world.
