Mug Shot of Inmate With Unbelievably Wide Neck Goes Viral

"Dude up to his neck in charges," one Facebook user wrote under the viral post.




A Facebook post from the Escambia County Sheriff's Office surpassed 200,000 shares thanks to the width of its new inmate's neck.

The mugshot of recently arrested Charles Dion McDowell, shared in the post, is eye-grabbing to say the least. The 31-year-old smiles as his neck bulges and exceeds the width of his head. Just take a look for yourself:

McDowell is facing multiple drug charges including possession of meth, cocaine, and marijuana, as well as other controlled substances. I didn’t even know sheriff's officers posted mugshots on Facebook like this, and ethically, the whole thing is kind of a gray area, but hey, welcome to Florida.

Here are a few of the comments left under the post (notably all dad jokes):

“You should be ashamed of yourselves, all this neckativity isn’t right at all,” user Ramon Ross commented.

“His neck is still at LARGE!!!” joked Barry Jacobs.

"They gonna put him in jail and throat away the key," said Noble McGregor.

"Dude up to his neck in charges," wrote Dustin Gilland.

Meanwhile, Twitter came through with the more timely crossovers.

“...thank you, neck...”

No one seems to know what's going on with McDowell's neck, but I truly hope he's okay.
