Police probe 'threat' to TV host

Los Angeles police are investigating a threatening letter sent to Craig Ferguson which contained a white powder that turned out to be harmless.

Detective Gus Villanueva declined to discuss the nature of the threat against the Scotland-born talk show host, saying only that it came in an envelope sent from overseas.

Two people at CBS Television City, where The Late Late Show is filmed, were temporarily held in isolation after being exposed to the powder.

They were released after a hazardous materials team screened the powder and found it to be benign.

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said the agency was working with police to find out who sent the letter.
