Jeremy Meeks, a convicted felon whose hot mug shot went viral this week, is speaking out from jail about his bizarre 15 minutes of fame - and his incarceration.
Speaking to ABC's local affiliate in Sacramento, Calif., Jeremy Meeks said that he learned of his sudden Internet popularity after chatting with his wife.
Yes, he's married. Sorry ladies.
"Well I appreciate [the attention]," Meeks, 30, said from behind a glass wall. "But I just want them to know that this is really not me, I'm not some kingpin."
Meeks' mugshot set the Internet ablaze after the Stockton, Calif., Police Department posted his picture to its official Facebook page on Wednesday.
Meeks and four others were arrested in a gang-related bust, dubbed Operation Ceasefire, a combined effort between federal and local police authorities.
