Jeremy was born in California on February 7, 1984 and shot to viral fame after the Stockton Police Department posted his mugshot on Facebook.

The image racked up a huge 75,000 likes, 20,000 comments and 10,000 shares.

The 33-year-old, who has also been nicknamed The Blue Eyed Bandit and Jail Bae, was charged with gun possession and resisting arrest on June 18.

Two days later, his bail was raised to £780,000, and his mum Katherine Angier decided to capitalise on Jeremy’s viral fame – by setting up a GoFundMe page to raise money for his release.

She also insisted that the married dad-of-three’s gang-related charges stemmed from stereotypes about his tattoos.

Jeremy had previously served a nine-year sentence for grand theft from 2002.

However, it’s not all been plain sailing for Jeremy.

On April 24, the ex-con was denied entry to the UK – and sent packing back to the United States less than eight hours after landing at Heathrow Airport.

He had been due to take part in photo shoots in London and attend the cover launch of a new issue of fashion magazine Man About Town.

His agent said Jeremy was “really upset” after being escorted back to the plane by police.
