In a parallel to the television classic Breaking Bad, Bradley Allen Rowland, 40, and Terry Bateman, 45, were arrested Friday afternoon, according to the Clark County, Arkansas Sheriff's Department. Both men are associate professors of chemistry there.
Students suspected meth may have been involved when a chemical spill closed the college's science building in October for three weeks, the station reported.
Initial testing indicated an elevated presence of benzyl chloride, a chemical that can be used to synthesize meth, in a laboratory, she said.
The arrests drew comparisons to the central character in the hit TV series "Breaking Bad", in which a high school chemistry teacher began making methamphetamine.
Bateman, 45, and Rowland, 40, are both on administrative leave that started October 11, Hall said.

After an environmental service completed remediation work, including air filtering systems and temporarily removing some windows for ventilation, the building was reopened on October 29. "It was spot on and accurate when it came to the science, and, it has gotten a younger, newer generation interested in chemistry".
The subsequent investigation was headed by Henderson Chief of Police Johnny Campbell and included participation from Arkadelphia police, a narcotics task force and Henderson State University. "I feel like it was a wonderful recruiting tool".
Rowland spoke to the university's Oracle Online newspaper when he was hired in 2014, where he was labelled "Henderson's Heisenberg". The investigation is ongoing, he said.
Bateman and Rowland face charges for the manufacture of methamphetamine and the use of drug paraphernalia.
