Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank had a real-life gate crasher on their lot yesterday, cbs2 is reporting.Michael Rodriguez-Cintron, 43, "drove his Camaro up to a wooden gate Friday and plowed through it without stopping."

The New Yorker had "a fake gun and flammable liquids" and "ignition sources" packed in a duffel bag with him in the vehicle when he crashed through the gate and onto the movie studio lot.

A bomb squad was called in to inspect the bag. No one was injured during the crash.

Rodriguez-Cintron was apprehended "while roaming a back lot of the studio," and will be arraigned on Tuesday.
