Craig Ferguson Anthrax Scare

THE 911 CALL

'We Have 5 People Quarantined'

9/4/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Security at Craig Ferguson's "Late Late Show" didn't take any chances during last month's anthrax scare -- telling the 911 operator they immediately quarantined everyone who had contact with the white powder as soon as they could.

TMZ obtained a copy of the 911 call -- made by a very cool, calm and collected security guard who wasn't one of the five people exposed to the powder.

As we previously reported, a deranged fan put the powder in an envelope and mailed it to CBS Television City in L.A, along with a threatening letter -- but an investigation proved the powder was nothing more than cornmeal.

So far, no arrests have been made.

is it illegal to do that? Will you get in trouble for sending cornmeal to someone in an envelope?

If it is, that would be really ridiculous.

Really, TMZ? That's the most appropriate photo you could find to match the seriousness of an anthrax threat? *eyeroll*

I don't care what they did I care more of what the response was, and it wasn't quite professional. A disaster may come from where you least expect it but the fact that there won't an adequate response to protect the citizens is ******* disturbing. This what SUCKS.

I hope the cops are checking out every other comedian on the planet. When you are the comedy genius CraigyFerg is, the other guys get jealous.
