Jeremy Meeks' Wife: PISSED at Husband, Media Mug Shot Frenzy!

by at .

The wife of Hot Mug Shot Guy Jeremy Meeks, is not amused by all the excitement surrounding her recently arrested husband's ridiculously good looks.

Most likely because they have a kid and he's being held on $1 million bail?

"I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t see her at all in the cameras, because she’s upset," Simone Johnson, a friend of Meeks' wife, told CBS13 Sacramento.

"She’s totally furious. 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."

Jeremy Meeks, 30, was arrested with four other men on June 18 during a joint law enforcement gang sweep, and was arraigned on 11 felony counts.

The charges are related to firearm possession, street gang membership, and violating probation. It could be awhile before Hot Mug Shot Guy gets out.

The convicted felon, a married dad to a 3-year-old son who works in a warehouse, says he's a good person and a hard worker despite his gang past.

He's got the Crip and teardrop tattoos to prove his street affiliations, and once served time for grand theft, yet he insists this is not who he is anymore.

"Well I appreciate [the attention]," he said in an interview from jail last week, "But I just want them to know that this is really not me, I'm not some kingpin."

He did not address the current charges against him specifically; his mother says he is being profiled due to his old tattoos and believes he is innocent.

Stockton PD spokesperson Joseph Silva painted a different picture, however, calling Meeks "one of the most violent criminals in the Stockton area."

Meeks, who has been offered modeling jobs (seriously) as a result of his 15 minutes of viral fame, will be back in court for his arraignment June 27.
