Real-life Breaking Bad: Chem teacher accused of cooking meth

Stars of AMC drama series "Breaking Bad" Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) and Walter White (Bryan Cranston) are pictured in this AMC handout photo.


In a situation reminiscent of the hit AMC show Breaking Bad, a US chemistry teacher has been arrested for allegedly using his science skills to produce methamphetamine.

William Duncan, a chemistry teacher in Linden, Texas, is accused of cooking meth and selling it in the parking lot of his school. He was arrested after an undercover cop bought the drugs at Mae Luster Stephens Junior High School, police said.

"They were selling it all over the place. You've got to stop it," Chief Alton McWaters told KSLA.

This isn't the first case that's drawn comparisons to the TV series about a cancer-ridden chemistry teacher who becomes a meth cook. In August, cops in Tuscaloosa County, Ala., issued a press release looking for an escaped meth cook named Walter White, which is also the name of Breaking Bad's main character.
