The 79-year-old "Fashion Police" host was being filmed by a camera crew Tuesday while she complained the store refused to carry her book "I Hate Everything... Starting With Me."

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

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

Sugars says there were no citations or arrests.
