This is a video of an Alabama meth lab explosion that began in room 110 in the Bayou La Batre Inn and Suites motel, blasting the wall nearly 25 feet into the motel parking lot. Carlton Palmer was burned on 35% of his body as a result of the explosion that startled room renters who were outside when the explosion happened.
Palmer’s wife and his friend, Dereck Robinson, were also involved in the incident according to investigators. All three of the suspects are being charged with manufacturing a controlled substance, criminal mischief, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bayou Police Corporal Jason Edwards said this is a first for the city.
