It just got very real for Jeremy Meeks, whose mugshot went viral on social media after being arrested on five gun charges in the Northern California city of Stockton, landed himself a modelling deal. He gained instant fans with his mug shot, which lead to people photo shopping his face on fashion ads, i.e. Calvin Klein and Hugo Boss.

Who needs job applications anymore? TMZ is reporting Blaze Models in LA has signed Meeks to a $30,000 modeling contract. He will be represented by Gina Rodriguez of GR Media.

All we can say to Meeks now is good luck.  And don’t bring any guns to work.
