It is alleged that his bond was revoked in a previous case.

McDowell has been arrested a few times in the past year but he became a viral sensation when a mug shot was released of him and his huge neck.

The shot was taken when he was busted in early November in Florida

During that particular arrest, he was booked for eluding, possession of cocaine, meth as well as marijuana.

A week later, he was arrested in Lee County, Alabama for allegedly eluding law enforcement, reckless driving, driving with a revoked license, improper lane usage as well as a 2nd-degree possession of marijuana charge.

A representative for Wide Neck shared how “You have his word that’ll he’ll never go back to jail again!”

And I think we will need to see it to believe it.

And while Wide Neck is entertaining to look at, it may be a cause for concern.

According to a new study from Brazil, men with big necks may be at a higher risk for heart disease.

Researches found after analyzing over 4,000 men, the average neck circumference for a male was close to 15 inches.

For each 1-inch increase in neck circumference- men were 32 percent more likely to have insulin resistance, 24 percent more likely to have raised blood pressure, 50 percent more likely to have high triglycerides as well as 22 percent more likely to have low HDL or “good cholesterol.”

Study author, Cristina Baena, Ph.D. says that fat deposits around your neck can produce inflammatory substances that lead to plaque buildup in the carotid arteries in your neck, which hurts your heart health.



And as the relationship is most likely due to excess fat hanging out above your shoulders, men with thick necks thanks to strong, developed trap muscles likely wouldn’t face the same risks.

If your number is greater than 15.3 inches, according to Baena, you should see your doctor as a preventive measure.

Your doctor may wan to run blood sugar or cholesterol tests as well as check your BP.

In Baena’s study, men with a neck circumference that is greater than that were more likely to have 3 or more heart disease risk factors.

“Neck Tilt: From the sitting position, tilt your head down so your chin touches your chest. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Return to the starting position and repeat. Do this five times.

Side-to-Side Neck Tilt. From the same starting position, tilt your neck toward one shoulder, leading with your ear. Hold for 5 seconds and then return to the starting position. Do this five times on each side.

Neck Turn. Look straight ahead, then turn your head to one side, keeping your chin at the same level. Do this five times on each side.

Neck Stretch. Holding the rest of your body straight, push your chin forward, stretching your throat. Hold for 5 seconds. From the same starting position, push your chin backward and hold for 5 seconds. Do the forward and backward stretch five times each.

If any of these exercises cause severe pain or weakness in your hands or arms, stop right away and talk with your doctor.”

Remember, thick necks = do a health check!
