Back in April 2017, he was arrested after being accused of kidnapping and rape.

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office in Tennessee took him into custody after investigators said they found a seriously injured woman at a home, according to local news station WJHL.

RadarOnline.com can confirm that Parton remains on probation for the offense of aggravated assault until March 31, 2030.

The viral mugshot comes after former inmate Jeremy Meeks shot to fame with his own jailbird photo.

He secured many nicknames such as "Hot Felon," "Felon Bae," and "The Blue-Eyed Bandit" after the Stockton Police Department posted his mugshot on Facebook.

The image racked up a huge 75,000 likes, 20,000 comments, and 10,000 shares, and continued to make its rounds online.

Meeks has since ditched the world of crime and landed high-profile modeling gigs.

In 2017, he walked the runway in his first-ever debut and has since signed deals with Tommy Hilfiger, Philipp Plein, and more. Meeks has 1.5 million followers on Instagram and has dabbled into acting, appearing in the new Secret Society 2 and more.

Meeks was also famously in a relationship with Topshop heiress Chloe Green.

They began dating in July 2017 and later welcomed their baby boy, Jayden, on May 29, 2018. He also shares a child with ex-wife Melissa, with whom he had a bitter split.

By 2019, however, Meeks and Green opted to go their separate ways.
