WEST HOLLYWOOD (CBS) —  A woman threw a white substance — believed to be flour — at E! television personality Kim Kardashian at a West Hollywood hotel Thursday evening, a sheriff’s deputy said.

The woman was detained by security at the hotel in the 1000 block of San Vicente Boulevard, near Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Peter Gomez said.

Kardashian told officials she did not want to press charges.

A non-criminal battery report was taken, according to Gomez.

Kardashian returned to her room where she removed powder from her hair and clothing and returned to the event she was hosting, Gomez said.

Paramedics were summoned to the scene, but Kardashian declined medical attention, Gomez said.

The incident occurred at the London Hotel where Kardashian was reportedly holding an event promoting her new fragrance line, True Reflection.

PETA denies having anything to do with the attack and issued a statement Friday.

“PETA has tried everything from polite letters to public protests, but Kim Kardashian has not been moved by the news that animals are beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for real fur garments. Whoever threw that flour may reach her when our polite appeals did not.”

    This lady is absolutely stupid for throwing flour on Kim, I mean okay you don’t like her, but to do something like this really is cause for an ass-whooping. Believe me I am not a fan of Kim, but wrong is wrong.

    LOL, this is too funny.

  3. The Pipe Fitter says:

    Flour was thrown on her so her wet spot could be found and thus the pipe could be laid down on her.

  4. Rick says:

    You do not need flour to find the sarlacc pit!

    All I have to say is HAAAAAHA HAHAHA HAAAAAA HAHAHA I’m sorry but this is Ha-larious! I’m glad she’s okay but maybe this will keep her off the red carpet which she clearly has no purpose to be on. HA-LARIOUS!

    Should have thrown vinegar and water to reduce the fishy stench.

    PETA is a shadow of its former self. Flour? Really? What happened to fake blood? Red spray paint? Never mind that they’re a bunch of crazy hippies spitting in the face of thousands of years of using animal hides for clothing. They at least used to have the courage to do something that would get them arrested to get attention. This didn’t qualify as a cry for help.
