    More drama for Casey Kasem's family.

    After a judge granted the radio icon's daughter, Kerri Kasem, daily visitation rights on Friday, Kasem's wife, Jean, seemingly opted to protest the ruling by throwing a pound of raw hamburger meat at Kerri when she arrived at the Washington residence where her father has been staying on Sunday.

    According to NBC News, Kerri arrived with an ambulance to take Casey to the hospital, although the paramedics were not allowed inside the home. Moments later, a call was placed to 911 from inside the home, at which point a second ambulance and a fire truck arrived. After the fire truck was called away to another emergency, Jean exited her home and threw the hamburger meat at Kerri before the paramedics were finally allowed inside.

    While her husband was being taken away, Jean couldn't hide her outrage and was heard calling Kerri an "intrusive psycho" following the meat-throwing incident. 

    "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 News.

    Kerri and her stepmother are currently involved in a dispute as to whether the former "Top 40" host is receiving adequate medical care.

    Kasem's stepdaughter was actually appointed to be her father's temporary caretaker during a hearing last month after filing a missing persons report to locate her father and an attorney for her stepmother admitted to having "no idea" where his client's husband was. However, up until Sunday, Kasem was still believed to be under the care of his wife at a family friend's home in Washington.

    Last week, a judge granted Kerri visits with her father for an hour a day. She can also bring an investigator or off-duty officer along should she feel the need to protect herself.

    Casey's wife was given legal power to make medical decisions for him in 2011, saying then she had no desire to obtain conservatorship of her husband, who suffers from Lewy body disease, a form of dementia, unless a court ruled he needed protection. His daughter Kerri was denied conservatorship of her father in November 2013, with a judge saying he was getting "good to excellent care" at home with Jean.
