Dreamy McMug Shot

Mom Comes to His Defense

He's No Gangster!

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

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.

what eveybody said and try laser removal..
Urban dictionary Confusion about it's meaning has come from the victim's having to explain the tattoo when they get out of prison and have to explain it to family and loved one's. They would often state that they got the tattoo because they killed a man in prison. This statement was not far from the truth since their submissive act of becoming another man's "bitch" could easily be viewed as the death of their manhood.

Problems arose when men on the outside began to get the tattoos and brag that it signified their killing someone or lost a loved one. Unwittingly they had marked themselves as a target for predators if they ever went to prison.

Does his wife have a job? Giving up internet and cable would help. Some places offer money for donating plasma. Banks offer loans. Plenty of ways to get money besides asking others to support your son who may or may not still be a thug.

I feel bad for his Mother but a high bail is usually for good reason.... I dont see it but ¨good looks¨ do not guarantee a good person.
