Chesapeake, Va. - Adam Kuykendall will spend nearly three years behind bars for making meth in his parent's Chesapeake home. Now he is apologizing for the whole ordeal.

His mother told NewsChannel 3 she was horrified by the experience.

"It was no Heisenburg operation or nothing like that. It's just simple things that can be put together and done out of a single bottle," Kuykendall said.

Investigators suspected he and with his wheelchair-bound mother may have had meth-making chemicals on them, so they were sprayed down in the middle of the street.

"They almost had like a comical nature to them, they were laughing about it," Kuykendall said. "They thought it was funny."

"Here I am, sitting in a wheelchair," Kuykendall's mother Shir said. "They set me in the middle of the street, they hose me down, the SWAT team was here."

Chesapeake police say they can't assume anything when going into homes where meth is made, and they have to take every precaution.

"They humiliated us by hosing us down," Shir Kuykendall said.

Parkinson's disease had just recently put Shir in a wheelchair. Finding out her son was making meth in their home only added to her pain.

"I felt horrified," Shir Kuykendall said. "I knew he smoked a little weed, but nothing like this."

While in jail, Kuykendall is left to stew on what he has done and who he's let down.

"For me to put [her] through that, it was very difficult for me to talk to them, knowing the humility that they had to face that day," Kuykendall said.
