The picture that got people’s attention (Picture: Splash)
Move over Jeremy Meeks, there’s a new ‘hot felon’ in town.
Ladies and gentlemen meet Mekhi Alante Lucky, a 20-year-old crook from North Carolina who has landed a modelling contract thanks to his police mugshot.
Mekhi was arrested in April 2016 for speeding and driving a stolen vehicle and when his police picture was released he was given the name ‘Prison Bae’.
Thanks to his distinctive different coloured eyes he quickly got a large following after going viral.
As a result he’s now been signed up by Claire’s Modeling Agency, which is based in Atlanta.
The contract came despite his criminal record being as colourful as his eyes.
He was arrested five times between April and December last year for car theft, assault on a female, breaking and entering and resisting a public officer.
He’s also been in trouble for violating his parole.
Mekhi joins Jeremy Meeks on the police mugshot hall of hotness fame. Meeks was discovered in 2014 after he was arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm and grand theft.
He’s since been linked to Chloe Green, daughter and heiress of Topshop billionaire Philip Green.
