If you were driving through Brentwood and thought you saw The Terminator filling a pothole, you weren’t wrong.

Movie star and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was out personally fixing a pothole in his neighborhood on Tuesday, with motorists stopping by to thank him for taking action to repair the hazard which has apparently been in the road for quite a while.

“After the whole neighborhood has been upset about this giant pothole that’s been screwing up cars and bicycles for weeks, I went out with my team and fixed it,” the Governator tweeted

Potholes have been ravaging streets around Los Angeles and the rest of California after the torrential downpours the region saw this past winter.

Recently, nearly 50 drivers on the 71 Freeway in Pomona were forced to pull over, many of them with flat tires, due to massive potholes that opened in the northbound span of the freeway. 

Road crews around the region have been working hard to repair potholes caused by the historic rainfall. If your vehicle has sustained damage from a pothole on a California highway, you can file a reimbursement form by visiting the Caltrans website
