Remember Jeremy Meeks, a.k.a. the Fine Felon, the man whose smoldering mugshot launched a thousand midday panty changes? Well, there’s a new #PrisonBae in town—except this one’s a lady, and she’s really, really good at Twitter.

Meet Alysa Suguro Bathrick, an 18-year-old woman from Raleigh, N.C., who was recently arrested and charged with “possession with intent to sell, manufacture and/or distribute a Schedule IV controlled substance.” 

Or as she put it when she tweeted Dec. 1:

But Alysa’s Xanax habit is not half as badass as what she tweeted immediately after she was released from police custody:

Bathrick seems to be enjoying her newfound fame, if her flirtatious tweets back at her “fans” are any indication. 

I’m not one to begrudge a newly minted Internet celebrity her success, so Alysa, if you’re reading this, I’d like to congratulate you, and leave you with one small word of advice: Girl, the next time you get busted for selling prescription anxiety meds, do yourself a favor and get your hair did first, ’cause those ombre highlights are doing nothing for you. (Your eyebrow game, however, is on fleek.)

Update 11:58pm CT, Dec. 3: An original version of this post misidentified Xanax as a painkiller. It is an anti-anxiety medicine.
