(NEWSER) – The wife of "handsome mug shot man" Jeremy Meeks is none too thrilled with his newfound online celebrity, Fox News reports. Arrested this week on a gang charge and five weapons charges, Meeks fueled tens of thousands of Facebook "likes" and more than 11,000 shares with his blue-eyed, chiseled mug shot—but his wife is "furious," a friend told CBS Sacramento at Meeks' arraignment on Friday. "Her man is in there and people are taking it as a joke, thinking it’s funny talking about his looks, saying all kinds of crazy things." In other "Meek-dreamy" news:


  • Meeks says he appreciates the attention, "but I just want them to know that this really is not me," he told News 10.
  • That said, Meeks has served two years for grand theft and had "brushes with the law" for resisting arrest and associating with the Crips gang, CNN reports. This time he was arrested by Stockton police for driving a car that contained a round of ammunition, an unregistered handgun, and a little marijuana, police said.
