Final Word: Don't worry, guys, women don't want to date the hot mugshot guy

Ah, the mugshot. We love to look at pictures of people taken at their worst moment.

Whether its someone famous like Nick Nolte or the guy who looks like he might have just climbed out from under a truck, the photos are often hilarious.

This mugshot from Stockton, Calif., got so many likes that it got the attention of a local TV station. More than 10,000 women "liked" the photo and more than 2,400 women commented on the photo of 30-year-old Jeremy Meeks.

He was arrested on felony weapons charges, but that didn't stop comments like, "OMG, come to mama" and "He can kidnap me any"

It's no different from when a beautiful woman gets her mugshot "liked" but I think the difference is what these women would ACTUALLY do with Mr. Meeks.

We think he's hot, sure. But we don't want to DATE him. We'd rather date the guy who has a job and no felony record, even if he's just average-looking.

The bad guy is pure fantasy.

You guys, however, DO want to date that hot gal, just as soon as she's out on bail.

You figure she's really probably a nice girl who found herself in a bit of trouble, but with the right guy, she'll be the girl you want to bring home to mom. But she won't. You just don't want to admit it.

Girls, now, we are different. We tend to see the diamond in the rough.

We find that guy who has a great profile, super legs, (or, better yet, a really great mind) and choose him. Then we work on him slowly and deliberately, until he is the guy we want. Ask any woman how their man's wardrobe has changed since the day they met.

I rest my case.

Guys, don't worry. Your woman might think that felon is hot, but we don't want to marry him.

About the Author

Karie Dozer is host of Arizona's Noon News.

She has been an on-air personality nearly continually since her college days. She loves radio because it is intelligent, immediate and almost always available.

She is the youngest of nine children from a Midwestern Catholic family where she learned to be heard, fight for a place at the table and find humor in almost everything. She was hired as a news intern while a senior at ASU's Cronkite School, and found that covering human stories like the OJ Simpson white Bronco chase and the 1992-93 Phoenix Suns was too much fun to pass up.

She loved life in the newsroom with all the action and crazy personalities to go with it. She anchored and covered some sports too, until politics dragged her away. She served as press secretary for Arizona's Attorney General Grant Woods for a five-year stint before jumping back to radio on a part-time basis. Three years ago she got back in the biz on a more regular basis as a midday host on what is now KTAR News. She has a passion for the breaking news of the moment, education, local politics, great food, sports and fitness. She has trouble turning down a good argument, a good book or a good glass of wine.

In her spare time she takes care of her boys, (husband Rich, son Jack, and yellow lab Buddy,) and bakes awesome chocolate chip cookies. She enjoys the quality of life the Valley offers her family and the natural beauty of Arizona. Her favorite places are golf courses, her own kitchen, the city of Flagstaff, and wherever her family is.

She considers herself lucky to work with the amazingly talented people of KTAR radio.
