Man accused of crashing vehicle into Warner Bros. security gate to be arraigned
The man accused of crashing a car containing bomb-making materials through a security gate at Warner Bros. Studio in Burbank last week is scheduled to be arraigned in court Tuesday.
Michael Rodriquez-Cintron, 43, was arrested Friday afternoon shortly after crashing through the security gate and then driving back out a few minutes later. No one was injured in the incident.
Security officials pulled him over outside the gate and called in Burbank police, who brought in a Los Angeles County Sheriff's bomb squad to investigate the late model Chevy Camaro.
Investigators discovered a duffle bag containing several bottles of flammable liquids and ignition sources that "could potentially be used to make a destructive device," according to a notice issued by the police department. A replica of a firearm was also allegedly found inside the car.
Rodriquez-Cintron was booked on suspicion of possessing a destructive device and for having flammable or combustible materials.
Officials continue to investigate a possible motive for the trespassing incident.
Rodriquez-Cintron is scheduled to be arraigned in a Los Angeles County Superior Courtroom in Burbank.
