Authorities have arrested a local man in connection with a meth lab explosion that left one man critically injured.

As we first told you last week, a meth lab exploded early Friday morning inside the garage of a home in Bainbridge, critically injuring 31 year old Jeffery Parker.

Parker was taken to the Augusta Burn Center with severe internal and external chemical burns.

And on Monday, Decatur County Sheriff's officials arrested 23 year old Joshua Buckhaulter on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine in the presence of a child and unlawful possession of pseudo ephedrine.

Two children were inside the house at the time of the explosion.

More charges are pending.

Decatur County Sheriff's office says the meth lab exploded inside the garage of a home located at 2606 Twin Lakes Drive in Bainbridge, around midnight Friday morning.

Nix says 31 year old Jeffery Parker was initially taken to Bainbridge Memorial Hospital., but was later transferred to the Augusta Burn Center with severe internal and external chemical burns.

We're told Parker's girlfriend and two children were inside the house at the time of the explosion.

Authorities say they have been investigating Parker for manufacturing methamphetamine for several weeks now.

No arrests have been made at this time but charges are pending.

    Thank you for your post A. Rollo is very naive, living in his own little bubble. He doesn't seem to realize that there are many people else where in the world who are black that are needing help. Black children who have nothing in Africa do need help Rollo. Do you think those children don't need my help, as well as yours? Do you think they can get on their own two feet without our help? I was not trying to get your approval or a pat on the back from you. Just trying to let you know that I am not a racist. I do believe that we are all one as A says. God says to love everyone. I cannot hate you or anyone else, because God doesn't hate anyone, He loves us all equally. The way I see it is this: White people have always been on the top, therefore, white people have more opportunity. Blacks are looked down upon by many, and they need more opportunities. So if I had a million dollars that I wanted to give to blacks, would you condemn me for not giving it to "my own people" 1st?

    Rollo, how can you put Heather down for wanting to help anyone including black people. If there were only more people out there like her and her husband to do this it would be great but people like you find it wrong for some reason. You sound like you have alot of hate towards white people and you shouldn't. If she chooses to help anyone that is her choice so don't tell her to help her "own" people. Maybe she doesn't see white people as her own people maybe she sees everyone as one.

    NWTally, you obviously live in the wrong neighborhood and read hististics. Your facts are totally wrong. I see you are one of those white folks in denial. Heather, blacks are on the same level as the rest of you. Am I suppose to congratulate you for being a humanitarian towards blacks? Do what is in your heart, but don't expect large praise from the black community. You sound as if you are doing blacks a favor. We are just as equal and more equal as you are. If you want to do yourself a favor, go help your own people. They are the ones that are in trouble in terms of denial and a shrinking gene pool. You don't have to stand up for the rights of blacks. We have a God given right to live and die just as whites do. By the way, I am not a racist necessarily, but I believe that a person should look in their own back yard before they start lending a hand to assist someone else. Heather, help your own people.

    Bihimme-First, I don't live my life on this blog as some do. second-i didn't see an article on Chubby's. Thirdly-I have posted blogs in the past, standing up for the rights of blacks. Sometimes i change up my screen name and post under other names for the fun of creativity. And lastly--I am against all forms of racisim. My husband and I are big on Human rights, as his dream job is working with Amnesty International and my dream job is moving to Africa to work in underpriviledged schools helping the children and their families who are raped, starving, HIV infected, and literally just waiting for the day to come when they die. I probably stand up more against the racisim of blacks than I do white people (and I am white myself). I want to see blacks on the same level as the rest of us, but blacks (and whites) have to learn to keep their mouths shut about racism and stop pointing a finger in the hopes that it will end. Pointing fingers is getting us nowhere, do you agree?

    heather where were your posts condemning racism in the chubbys robbery article, when the comments were against blacks? though i dont agree with rollo, if youre going to call someone out for being racist, then make sure you do it on both ends not just when it is a black person.

    sRollo - It doesn't make a difference what color this guy is....he's trash. The difference is the "white community" doesn't make excuses or glamorize his choices! The "black community" seems to spend an inordinate amount of time glorifying THUG life, glamorizing drug sales and culture, and making excuses and/or celebrating criminal activities. It has nothing to do with being white or black, but has to do with being a responsible member of the community, being a provider, and taking care of your family - Hard work pays off no matter your color. Too many people choose the easy way of crime, and statistics show the majority of those are black. Teen pregnancies and single unwed (not divorced) mothers with multiple children are predominately black....and supported - even celebrated - within the culture. Going to jail is considered a rite of passage for most black males, while most white males want to have a job or career and support their families. These are facts!!
