Gate crasher attempted to burn down Warner Bros. studio
BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — A man who crashed a car allegedly carrying flammable liquids through a gate at the Warner Bros. Studios near Los Angeles has been charged with attempted arson.
Forty-three-year-old Michael Angel Rodriguez-Cintron was charged Tuesday with two counts of possessing a flammable material and attempting to burn. He remains jailed Wednesday.
Authorities say he was arrested Friday after plowing a Camaro through a wooden gate arm and driving around the studio backlot in Burbank.
Police say they found bottles of flammable liquid, ignition devices and a fake gun in the car.
Sgt. Robert Quesada tells the Los Angeles Daily News that the man felt he was slighted by the studio, possibly over a script, but investigators don't know if the complaint is legitimate.
