SILVERDALE, Wash., June 2 (UPI) -- Casey Kasem was hospitalized Sunday following a dramatic confrontation between his wife and daughter.

The 82-year-old radio icon and his wife, Jean Kasem, were in Washington state when Kerri Kasem, his eldest daughter with ex-wife Linda Meyers, arrived to take him to the hospital. Casey can no longer speak due to Lewy body dementia, and Kerri was granted visitation rights and permission to take him to a doctor by a Kitsap County judge on Friday.

NBC News reports that Kerri's attempt to take her father to the hospital on Sunday was met with violent resistance from Jean. Jean refused to let paramedics in when the ambulance arrived, then threw a pound of raw hamburger meat at her stepdaughter. Medical workers were eventually able to transport Casey safely to a nearby hospital.

"In the name of King David, I threw a piece of raw meat into the street in exchange for my husband to the wild rabid dogs," Jean told NBC after her husband had gone.

Casey has been in Washington since Jean secretly transported him there in May. Kerri saw her father for the first time on Friday, and was reportedly "very, very upset" by his decline in health.
