LEE COUNTY, Fla. – The Florida man whose mugshot went viral last week for his tree trunk-sized neck appeared to not have learned his lesson. The man who became known as “Neck Guy” was arrested again on Wednesday after leading police on a high-speed chase.

Charles Dion McDowell, 31, was arrested Wednesday morning in Alabama after police used spike strips to stop his car as he attempted to flee from officers on Interstate 85, the The Auburn Plainsman reported.

McDowell’s mugshot became a viral sensation last week after Escambia County Sheriff’s Office posted it on its Facebook page to announce his arrest – which including charges of evading police.


“McDowell is currently a guest at the GoldStar Hotel with a bond of $57,000,” deputies wrote in the post at the time.

According to jail records, he paid the bond and was released from custody.

However, after Wednesday’s arrest, McDowell is now facing five additional charges in Alabama: eluding police, second-degree marijuana possession, driving with a revoked license, reckless driving, and improper lane usage.

Nevertheless, he was released Wednesday after posting a $5,400 bond.

It didn’t take long for jokes to start pouring in, with former WWE champ Sean “X-Pac” Waltman chiming in on Twitter.

“Keeps ending up in the wrong neck of the woods,” he wrote.

As you can see, McDowell looks more somber in his second booking photo.
