Police mugshot prompts marriage proposals

Mugshot /Hillsborough County

A woman's police mugshot has gone viral, prompting declarations of love and even proposals of marriage from around the world.

Meagan Simmons, 27, of Tampa, Florida, was arrested for drink-driving in 2010 and the mugshot photo of her in an orange jumpsuit was recently posted on Reddit.

And the separated mother-of-four has since received an avalanche of gentlemanly attention, including dozens of marriage proposals.

Men added their own corny captions to the mugshot such as 'GUILTY - of taking my breath away', and 'Arrested for breaking and entering - YOUR HEART'.

Social media sites were overtaken by comments from men wanting to marry her, looking for her phone number and asking if she is a model.

One wrote: "Come to Ireland, I'll put you up for a while and you can work in my friend's pub while you find your feet, look up your family history and then move on to something better."

Another added: "I hope if you have a man he takes care of you and showers you with love and tenderness. If we were together you would need for nothing."

Ms Simmons said she wasn't completely happy with all of the attention and had been forced to block people on social networks who had sent her rude messages.

"It's crazy lol - I don't understand what all the hype is about," she wrote on Twitter. "That arrest was in 2010 get over it already. I think the pic is terrible honestly."
