A Florida man was in the wrong neck of the woods Tuesday, and now he’s become a viral sensation.
Charles Dion McDowell was arrested on charges of fleeing and eluding police, possession of meth, cocaine and other drug charges — but it’s not the crime people are talking about.
The 31-year-old’s tree trunk-sized neck caught social media users’ attention after Escambia County Sheriff’s Office posted the fugitive’s mugshot on its Facebook to announce his arrest.
“McDowell is currently a guest at the GoldStar Hotel with a bond of $57,000,” the post said.
The update garnered more than 47,000 reactions and 242,000 comments, many about the size of McDowell’s neck.
