Real-life ‘Breaking Bad’: Two chemistry professors arrested for cooking meth in school lab

Two Arkansas chemistry professors were arrested on charges of cooking up methamphetamine in a university lab.

According to a report by KATV, the duo, identified as Bradley Allen Rowland, 40, and Terry David Bateman, 45, were taken into custody on Nov. 15.

Their acts were considered an uncanny echo of the hit series “Breaking Bad”.

They both work at Henderson State University whose Reynolds Science Center was closed since Oct. 8 due to an “undetermined chemical odor”.

Tests done by the university revealed that benzyl chloride, used to synthesize methamphetamines, had been found spilled on surfaces of the lab.

Both professors were charged with the manufacture of methamphetamine and the use of drug paraphernalia.

There is no word from the university if they made meth on campus.

What does the series have to do with this?

In a report by Newsweek, Rowland was interviewed by the Henderson State University Oracle and was quoted in saying that he enjoys the show. “It was spot on and accurate when it came to the science,” the professor said in the report.

He added that the series’ way of showing how a younger, newer generation got interested in chemistry, made him feel like it was a ‘wonderful recruiting tool’.

Both men were placed under administrative leave since October 11.

The Reynolds Science Center reopened last Oct. 29 after it passed EPA inspection.
