Charlotte Meth Lab Explodes In Man's Hand


CHARLOTTE, Mich. (WLNS) – A 30-year-old man suffered severe cuts and burns after police say a meth lab exploded in his downtown Charlotte apartment late Friday night.

Officials say the man was making meth using the "one-pot" method, which reduces the time and amount of ingredients needed to make the drug. Apparently, the bottle the man was using exploded while in his hand, causing enough physical damage to send him to the University of Michigan Trauma Burn Center in Ann Arbor.

The explosion happened in a single apartment building directly across from the Charlotte police and fire departments in the 100 block of E. Lawrence. No one else was home at the time besides the victim. The vacant tattoo business directly below the apartment was also damaged.
