BREAKING BAD: Chemistry Professors Arrested For Making Meth at School
We love our Breaking Bad here in Boise, but the narrative of the high school chemistry teacher making meth with his chem supplies and former student (Boise's own Aaron Paul) never seemed like a realistic storyline.. until now.
On Friday in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, two chemistry professors at Henderson State University were arrested for making methamphetamine in their lab at school.
The Washington Post reports that Terry Bateman and Bradley Rowland have been on leave since reports of an undetermined chemical odor was detected at the university science center. Initial testing revealed the source of the odor to be an elevated presence of benzyl chloride, a chemical that's typically used to synthesize meth.
Maybe they felt inspired when El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie came out? Not sure what the case is, but either way: don't do drugs.
