Swayze Escapes Anthrax Scare

Patrick Swayze was unhurt in a bizarre anthrax scare at a Chicago-area police station yesterday.

A box was brought into a Berwyn, Ill. police station -- where Swayze was shooting a movie -- and began leaking white powder, reports the Chicago Tribune. A hazmat team was rushed in, and Patrick didn't come into contact with the powder, which tested negative for cocaine and anthrax.

It turned out to be corn starch.
