White Powder Scare Sends Fire Department to Los Angeles Home of ‘Monty Python’ Star

“Monty Python” star Eric Idle had a scary situation Monday night at his home in Los Angeles after someone found an unknown white substance in the mail.

It’s unclear if the 76-year-old star was home at the time, but the Los Angeles Fire Department raced to his Hollywood Hills home after powder was allegedly found in a letter notifying the recipient of a package delivery.

LAPD Hazmat units were also on scene and quickly determined that there was no threat. Officials said they could not find any powder, however two women were transported to the hospital as a precautionary measure. It’s unclear if one of those women transported was Idle’s wife, actress Tania Kosevich.
