Move Over Jeremy Meeks, Angela Coates is the New Mug-Shot Hottie
Jeremy Meeks took the internet by storm in June, when his seemingly attractive mugshot went viral, creating an unprecedented fan base. Meeks is no longer the mugshot model of the moment, however. 22 year old model Angela Coates, from Miami, is taking over. Arrested in Georgia on August 26 on charges of disorderly conduct, her mugshot was released and almost instantly created it’s own internet fan base.

Twitter has exploded with comments, links, and shares. Trending hashtags included #PrisonBae and #AngelaCoates. Many users also offered to pay her bail of $360, but she had already made it herself. One tweet reads, “If you’re not committed to setting Angela Coates free, you’re either a loser or your gf [girlfriend] is looking at all of your tweets.”
In response, Coates says that the whole affair is “…straight comedy.” By the time all of this went viral, she had already posted bail herself, and tweeted as such. Offers continued to come in, and still do.
Coates is no stranger to being in the spotlight because of her looks. She has previously been featured as a “Beauty of the Week” in Jet Magazine, and boasts on her Instagram account that she is a model and an entrepreneur. No word as of yet, on if Coates will follow in Meeks footsteps and earn a modelling contract.
Last week a burgaler from Montreal made international headlines after her photos were posted online.
Stéphanie Beaudoin has been dubbed by media websites as the “world’s hottest criminal” for a photo the 21-year-old alleged thief posted on Twitter showing herself posing in a bikini.
