A mugshot of a young woman from Arkansas, dubbed 'prisonbae', has gone viral.

Sarah Seawright was arrested when she failed to appear at a court hearing in December 2014 after she was charged with dangerous driving.

Although she is now fee, having paid a fine, Sarah has become something of a pin-up on social media, garnering plenty of adoring fans.

She's not the first.  In 2014 Jeremy Meeks went viral thanks to his mugshot which was posted to a California police department's Facebook page.

His popularity even bagged him a contract with talent agency White Cross Management.

He was signed while he was still serving time for the illegal possession of a firearm.

Jim Jordan, the agent who signed him, said there were movie offers on the table.

“I'm in a place where I will be able to provide for my family and really change my life,”Meeks told ABC News from prison last year.
