SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (PIX11) — Move over Jeremy Meeks, a new “hot convict” is in town.

Sean Kory, 29, of Santa Cruz, was arrested after he allegedly attacked a person dressed as a Fox News reporter, authorities said Saturday.

Kory told the unidentified victim he “hates Fox News” and then grabbed his microphone. The 29-year-old allegedly proceeded to rub the microphone on his crotch.

Police say he attacked the victim with an aluminum tennis racquet. The “Fox News reporter” was able to walk away without serious injuries.

He reported Kory to police and upon arrival, the suspect tried to flee officers, but was eventually caught.

The man’s mugshot went viral over the weekend with social media users saying Jeremy Meeks has competition. Meeks previously made headlines in June for his “sexy” mugshot.

Meeks, 30, was arrested along with three other men during a gun sweep in Stockton. His photo ended up inspiring #FelonCrushFriday, as well as a plea on the Internet to free the convicted felon.

Not everybody is blown away by Kory’s looks. Some social media users have expressed their preference to Meeks instead.
