Tv - Casey Kasem Transferred To Hospital After Family Showdown
Ailing U.S. radio and Tv icon Casey Kasem was transferred to a medical facility on Sunday (01Jun14) following a dramatic showdown at his family home.
His daughter, Kerri Kasem - who has been appointed her father's official caretaker following a legal battle with the 82 year old's wife, Jean - arrived at the star's home alongside paramedics.
Kerri accompanied her dad, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, into an ambulance, which transported him to hospital.
Her arrival caused an ugly scene at the property in Washington state as Jean Kasem allegedly hurled raw meat at her step-daughter. Police officers and the fire service were called in to help paramedics access the house.
Jean later told NBC News, "I threw a piece of raw meat into the street in exchange for my husband to the wild rabid dogs."
The scene came two days after a judge ordered Jean to allow Kerri daily visits to her father. Kerri was also given permission to have the veteran entertainer examined by a doctor.
