I’ve never done a crime (I did nick a Mars bar from my local off licence when I was about 10) but if I did I’d be willing to bet my mugshot would go viral.

Like, for example, Justin Bieber’s, which did the rounds because, well, it was Bieber, and because he looked pretty smug/like he’d been thrown a surprise birthday party.

Or Jeremy Meeks aka the “Hot Felon” – who had a beautiful mugshot and ended up becoming a fashion model/the spouse of a billionaire’s daughter.

But whereas these two chaps went viral because they looked good, I would be ripped to pieces by the internet because of how bad I looked; tears streaming down my face, hair all over the place, snot pouring down my nose etc, etc.

Still, I’m not sure I’d get as roasted as this next guy, who has felt the full force of the web and it’s vicious (hilarious) trolling.

Basically, Charles Dion McDowell was arrested in Florida for several drug offences recently, with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office posting his mugshot on the department’s Facebook:

Alongside the picture, they wrote:

Congratulations to Charles Dion McDowell, DOB: 8/12/87 *share

Charles Dion McDowell was arrested for Fleeing/Eluding Police with Lights & Sirens Active, Possession of Meth with Intent to Sell/Manufacture/Deliver, Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Sell/Manufacture/Deliver Schedule II, Possession of Controlled Substance without a Prescription, Possession of Marijuana, and Possession of Drug Equipment.

McDowell is currently a guest at the GoldStar Hotel with a bond of $57,000. #Gotcha

As you’ve probably guessed, though, people weren’t bothered about that.

No, they were more interested in his gigantic neck.

At the time of writing the post has 296k comments, many of which are brilliant jokes at the offender’s expense.

Here’s the best of them:

One person wrote:

Y’all come on he gotta lotta weight on his shoulders right now.

While another said:

Y’all leave this man alone! I bet he’d stick his neck out for you if you needed his help. #dontjudge

And another wrote:

The arresting officer was quoted as saying: “this is by far the biggest collar of my career.”

I could read them all day.

I told you, you do not want to go viral these days.

Unless you’ve got extremely thick skin. Or neck (?)
