Jeremy Meeks has become an overnight internet sensation, after his mugshot that was posted online by the Stockton Police Department went viral.

The mugshot of the 30-year-old, who was arrested on five weapons charges and one gang charge, quickly captured the hearts and "likes" of thousands of Facebook users.

Twitter went abuzz with several memes, with Meeks's image photoshopped to make it appear he is posing for brands like Givenchy, Calvin Klein and Hugo Boss. In some of the memes, his tattoos have been removed.

Meeks is currently being held in the San Joaquin County Jail on $900,000 bail.

Speaking from jail, Meeks revealed that he learned of his newfound fame when he spoke with his wife.

"I just visited my wife and she said I blew up all over Facebook," he told News 10. "I appreciate [the attention] but I just want them to know that this is really not me. I'm not some kingpin."
