Angela Coates the new mugshot sensation
With impeccable make-up on, the 22-year-old former Jet Magazine “Beauty of the Week” Angela Coates posed sensually for her mugshot.
The glamorous model was arrested last month for disorderly conduct in Dekalb County, Georgia. Her photo is America’s latest social media fascination,
Since the arrest, the mugshot has gone viral. Thousands of tweeters commented on her “awesome looks,” and some even offered to pay her bail, which was set at $360.
One user commented:
If you’re not committed to setting Angela Coates free, you’re either a loser or your gf is looking at all of your tweets.
Another commenter said Angela’s mugshot could easily pass as a “beauty pageant entry form”, while some of the admirers were discussing a Kickstarter fundraiser to free her.
According to Clutch Magazine, Coates later disclosed she was released the same night. This is what she reportedly tweeted right after her 26th August release: “Y’all and this mugshot s***.”
“I was released the same night lol. This is straight comedy,” she continued.
Born in Tampa, Florida, and living in Miami, she lists ballet, baking and shoe design as her hobbies. According to her profile on Georgia Arrests, she is a former student of Hillsborough Community College, 5’7″ tall and weighing 140lbs.
The Angela Coates mugshot arrived three months after the convicted felon Jeremy Meeks created a similar fuss when police posted his mugshot on their Facebook page.
The 30-year-old criminal gathered more than 20,000 likes in less than 24 hours. The blue-eyed, strong-jawed man caught the “loving” of many Facebook users.
In June, Meeks’ attorney informed MailOnline his client was contacted by elite fashion designers who wanted to dress him for the trial. The reports he was offered a $30,000 modeling contract were not founded, his talent manager said.
Jeremy Meeks’ case has now gone to the federal prosecutors. He was arrested on slew of state felony counts as part of a gang bust in Stockton, California.
