Dreamy McMug Shot

Mom Comes to His Defense

He's No Gangster!

6/20/2014 8:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hot Mug Shot Guy Gangster
Jeremy Meeks -- aka Dreamy McMug Shot -- for sure does one thing well ... he makes good kids, and has a very loyal mom who says McMug is being stereotyped because of his old tattoos.

Meeks is currently being held on $900,000 bail for illegally possessing firearms and ammo, carrying a loaded firearm in public and criminal street gang activity. 

His mother, Katherine Angier, is trying to raise money for bail using the website GoFundMe. She wrote, "Please help. My son was taken into custody on his way to work. He is a working man with a son. He is being stereotyped due to old tattoos."

She added, "He's my son and he is so sweet. Please help him to get a fair trial or else he'll be railroaded."

McMug's sister tells TMZ ... the only reason he carries guns is because he used to be in a gang and needs to protect himself.  And she says, he's been a practicing Christian for 7 years. 

The D.A.'s office says Meeks is a known member of the Northside Gangster Crips ... which is why gang charges were also filed against him.

Angier is hoping to raise $25,000 for her son's bail ... but as of this posting, she's only received $238.

The kid is 3 years old. The mother is McMug's wife. They have been married for 4 years.

Check out the gallery below of a few shots of Jeremy through the years. Let's just say ... a haircut did the man wonders!

No one is stereotyping him based on his tattoos. They can make excuses for why he is carrying an arsenal of guns all they want, but the fact is that felons can't be around guns, let alone possess them. If he wanted out of the gang all he had to do was move to a new area where no one knew of his gang affiliation.

"oh my baby didn't do anything !" if I had a dollar for every time I heard that. He's been a practicing Christen because he looked at a Bible once, seven years ago. Let's post the pictures of him, the one time he saw his kid. He's a wanna be thug walking around the streets with a gun, Good people don't do that. face the truth lady, you failed as a parent and you want us all to feel sorry for you now.
