MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) – Police say a driver passed out in his car at a Tennessee gas station while a batch of methamphetamine was cooking in the back seat.

An employee at the gas station in Murfreesboro, about 30 miles southeast of Nashville, called police because the car was sitting at the pump for about an hour on New Year’s Day.

Police say a chemical process to make the drug was in progress. Some meth-making ingredients can be explosive.

Murfreesboro Assistant Fire Chief Allen Swader told The Daily News Journal that gas pumps were shut off as a precaution.

Thirty-one-year-old Nathan E. Beasley is being held on a $15,000 bond on charges of driving under the influence, driving on a suspended license, reckless endangerment and manufacturing meth. No attorney was listed in police records.

    I agree with JP503 about the bail being too low. This guy must have been out of his mind to fall asleep in the car while manufacturing.... but good job to the LE's for getting him under control.

    $15,000 is way to low. I swear some of the judges need to pull thier heads out of their u know what and think about what the POS did then set a bond that has some weight to it.

    This guy is a genius, cook up a potentially explosive chemical in front of a gas pump. I hope the next time he tries it he just dies and saves the taxpayer the money.
