Back in 2010, Meagan McCullough, then a 25-year-old waitress, was arrested on July 25 in Zephyrhills, Florida for reckless driving (or driving under the influence). Her mugshot was posted on the Internet and drew quite a reaction due to her unusually photogenic appearance (despite the awkward circumstances). The combination of beauty and an orange jumpsuit were intriguing. This week the photo has been appearing around the Internet as hundreds post their own light-hearted captions to the photo. To date there are nearly 300 versions of her mug shot with various, ahem, humorous comments superimposed over her image. According to Huffington Post, Meagan just became aware that her picture had gone viral, three years after her arrest.
“I knew the picture was out there, but didn’t know it was big until a journalist called me on Friday. I’m not famous, everyone knows me here.”
Here’s the photo meme as it originally appeared back in 2010.
And here’s a more recent, updated meme, as posted on Reddit.
Meagan says her newfound fame has been rather strange.
“People are really weird. They stalk you, they message you, they say crazy things. They know where I live. People are talking about flying to Zephyrhills, visiting me, marrying me. People on Twitter have even offered to pay my bills.”
Here’s a more complete pictorial montage of Meagan McCullough’s “Attractive Convict” memes along with a few “better composed” pictures of the new superstar.
