Hot mugshot prompts marriage proposals

Meagan Simmons' mug shot



An attractive young woman arrested for drinking and driving almost three years ago is receiving marriage proposals from all over the Internet after someone circulated her mugshot.

"It's crazy lol i don't understand what all the hype is about," Meagan Simmons wrote on Twitter in response to comments like, "best. mugshot. ever."

Simmons, a 27-year-old mother of four from Florida, was picked up for DUI on July 25, 2010, and photographed in what looks like a standard-issue orange jumpsuit, WTSP in Tampa Bay reports.

After a user posted the photo on the sharing site Reddit this past weekend, the "attractive convict" meme was born, her photo making the rounds with captions like "Guilty of taking my breath away" and "Can I have her cell number."

Simmons told the news channel she was overwhelmed with the attention, including offers to pay her bills or marry her.

Writing under her Twitter handle, @meagabeauty, Simmons said, "i think the pic is terrible honestly lol."

The DUI charge was ultimately dropped.
