White powder sent to 'Dancing with the Stars' studio



Authorities responded Wednesday to the CBS Television Studios in the Fairfax district after a white powdery substance was found in a letter addressed to "Dancing with the Stars," one of the shows filmed there.
The call came out about 3:30 p.m. at the CBS studios in the 7800 block of Beverly Boulevard. The substance was determined be harmless after being examined by the Los Angeles Police Department's hazardous materials personnel.
It is the second time in as many months that a letter containing an unknown powder was sent to the studios. Earlier, a similar substance was found in a threatening letter sent to late-night host Craig Ferguson.
The substance turned out not to be a threat. Ferguson made light of the incident on Twitter.

"Finally some office drama that isn't about Craig's hair! FYI: The hair is hot. Anthrax scare, not so much," he said.
