HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA) – Police were called to the Hollywood Hills home of British comedian Eric Idle Monday night after someone inside the home opened an envelope with an unidentified substance inside.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the envelope was certified from Thailand and was brought inside the home and touched by at least one person.

There were reportedly three people inside of the house when the envelope was opened, one of which is bedridden.

A HazMat team was reported to be handling the situation, and police later said the substance inside was residue from the envelope.

No one was seriously injured in the incident.
