PENSACOLA, Fla. (WDHN) — The man whose mugshot stormed the internet has been put back in jail.

According to meme star Charles “Wide Neck” McDowell’s Instagram, a judge revoked the bond for his charges for drug possession and attempting to elude the authorities.

McDowell became internet famous after his mugshot was posted online by the Escambia County Sheriff’s Sheriff’s Department.

Since then, he became a part of the Shrimp Gang, a collection of online celebs, and ended up gaining 1.3 million followers on Instagram. He even recorded a music video with fellow neck meme icon “Daddy Long Neck.”

However, McDowell will now have to put his new life of brand promotions and nightclub appearances on hold until his case is decided.

“He appreciates all the love and support from everyone in the past 2 months,” his Instagram post states. “Charles’ life has changed for the better for himself and his family. When all this is over with this last case, you have his word that’ll he’ll never go back to jail again!”

He is set to appear in court on Feb. 21.
