They say good looks aren’t everything, but a woman from the state of Arkansas is certainly generating quite a buzz for hers.

An image of a lovely female is going viral on social media since Saturday, as Sarah Seawright has earned the monicker ‘Prisonbae’ for her surprisingly attractive mug shot.

She was taken into police custody in April, for failure to appear in court in connection with a careless driving arrest, the Telegraph reported.


Seawright, however, is now free after reportedly paying a total of  $365 (PHP 17,069) in fines, and is apparently enjoying her new-found celebrity status—as countless fans posted love-struck messages on social media.

A Twitter user even went as far as comparing her to the Game of Thrones’ star, Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke). Her post was captioned, “Khaleesi of the hood. AKA Black Daenerys, Breaker of Prison Chains #GameofThrones #PrisonBae”.

Meanwhile, Seanwright expressed her shock upon her knew found fame through a short and expletive post on her personal Facebook account. “This [expletive] is CRAZZZZYY”, she wrote.

A Twitter account believed to be hers also featured the status, “Social Media Queen #PrisonBae Here to Stay!”, along with a number of links to various media coverage of her mugshot.

Apart from her recent charge, ‘PrisonBae’ was also reportedly indicted of armed robbery charges in 2012, along with a man named LeDarius Laron Scales.

She was also charged with aggravated robbery, first-degree battery, kidnapping, hindering apprehension and tampering with evidence.


However, she managed to avoid jail time in 2014 after pleading guilty to a lesser offense, and was simply sentenced to just five years probation.

A similar incident involving an attractive man’s mugshot also went viral two years ago, as a felon named Jeremy Meeks gained online popularity for his piercing blue eyes and chiselled jaw.
