BURBANK (AP) — Police were called to a Costco store in a Los Angeles suburb after comedian Joan Rivers handcuffed herself to a shopping cart to protest the store, which is not selling her latest book.

The 79-year-old “Fashion Police” host was being filmed by a camera crew Tuesday as she complained that the store in Burbank, Calif., had refused to carry her book, “I Hate Everything... Starting With Me.”

Burbank city spokesman Drew Sugars says the store manager called police, who sent officers to the scene because they were uncertain of the scale of the situation.

They ended up escorting Rivers from the store, and she and her crew left without incident.
