GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Eight members of the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department SWAT team were rushed to Gwinnett Medical Center Thursday morning.

The hospital said their arrival prompted a decontamination situation and a hazmat team was called in. They are set up just outside of the emergency room.

Police sources tell Channel 2's Tony Thomas SWAT members discovered a meth lab earlier in the morning.

According to officials, a suspect struggled with officers as he tried to wash suspected methamphetamine down a bathtub drain.  Investigators were able to seize nearly 15 pounds.

All of the deputies are expected to be OK.
