OKMULGEE COUNTY, Okla. (WKOW) – On early Friday morning, a portable meth lab exploded in a man's pants when he took off running from police in Okmulgee County, Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma State Patrol Trooper Shiloh Hill says after he pulled over David Williams, he asked him about a chemical smell in the car. That's when Williams ran away. When Hill caught up to Williams, he discovered what he was carrying.
"After a brief struggle, it was determined there was an active meth lab in his pants bursting during the struggle and got all over his body," Hill said.
Williams was booked into the Okmulgee County jail on a complaint of manufacture of a controlled and dangerous substance.
Hill says the portable meth lab process is extremely dangerous because it involves putting chemical ingredients in a single container, then flipping it upside down to mix it. The build-up pressure makes the mixture highly explosive.
