Charles Dion McDowell, better known as ‘Wide Neck Guy’, is back in jail after a judge revoked his bond, according to reports.

McDowell’s mugshot went viral last year thanks to his hefty neck.

He was originally arrested in Florida for several drug offences, including possession of both meth and cocaine, with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver.

McDowell isn’t facing any new charges, but was rearrested in Pensacola on Tuesday, January 29, when his bond was revoked by a judge.

Sharing the news on Instagram, an account called Damn Wide Neck, which has 1.3 million followers, wrote:

Since his arrest and subsequent meme-ification, McDowell seems to have been enjoying his new found viral fame.

As his latest run-in with the law may suggest however, officials don’t take kindly to someone they once arrested enjoying his internet-fame entirely because of the mugshot they took…
