According to CBS St. Louis, a Tulsa television station reported this incident happened shortly after midnight on Friday. Officials say the man ran when a trooper asked him about a chemical smell.
Trooper Shiloh Hall says the man had an active meth lab stuffed down his pants. The "one-pot lab" burst in his pants during a struggle with the trooper. The man was checked out by the hospital before he was booked in the local jail.
