An MTV host has returned to the U.S. after he and his team were detained by the Egyptian military, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.

Ryan Duffy, a host of MTV’s "The Vice Guide to Everything," was questioned for hours by Egyptian authorities before being handed over to the U.S. State Department, the story says.

The Egyptian authorities apparently thought he might be a spy, although he was in the country to shoot a "Vice" news series when he and his crew were captured near the Suez Canal.

"The padded room, long interrogations, and [bleeping] in a hole were quite unpleasant," Duffy said, according to the report.
