18-year-old Alysa Bathrick was arrested last month in Raleigh, North Carolina on charges of possession of a schedule IV controlled substance with intent to distribute, according to booking documents Bathrick posted to her own Twitter account.

When a Twitter user asked Bathrick what her charges were, the teen replied with "xanax homie."

The mugshot quickly went viral, with many Twitter users expressing their admiration of the mugshot to Bathrick.

Bathrick's mugshot isn't the first that generated a large fan following online. Jeremy Meeks, a man who was arrested this past June, became an online sensation after his mugshot went viral. Sean Kory became known as "hot mugshot guy 2.0" after his booking photo went viral earlier this year.
