News station WKMG in Orlando is reporting that the Theta Chi fraternity house at the University of Central Florida was evacuated earlier today due to the discovery of a "cup of suspicious white powder." What was it? Cocaine?! Meth?! Smart drugs?!?!?!

Eh, how about protein powder?

A post on the frat's Facebook explains:

Earlier this afternoon a UCF representative conducted a walkthrough of the Theta Chi house. She found a cup of BCAA workout protein powder, incorrectly assumed it was an illegal substance and informed the authorities. It has since been deemed a false alarm and the chemical tests have confirmed it.

UCF's student newspaper reported on the hullabaloo, noting that at one point a hazmat crew was present at the frat house.

After two tests, the paper reported, the substance was confirmed to be protein powder.
