Gressy was reportedly furious because Jean gave money to Liberty, 29, told her daughter with Casey, sources of law enforcement TMZ.

It was reported that he threatened to murder Jean, her lawyer and Liberty, who was present at the time of the incident, and called 911.

The police arrived later and arrested Gressy and he is charged with criminal threats. Allegedly he had locked himself in a room before the police arrived.

The case has yet to be referred to the L.A. County District Attorney. In an update on Tuesday afternoon TMZ reported that Jean had filed a temporary restraining order against Gressy.

Jean Kasem, who appeared on & # 39; Cheers & # 39 ;, has been engaged in legal fights with her three stepchildren for years after Casey's death at the age of 82 in June 2014.

Last year, police said they had not found evidence of misconduct after investigating allegations that the children of Casey Kasem were responsible for his death in 2014.

The old "American Top 40" host had a form of dementia and a severe bedsore when he died at the age of 82 in a hospital in Gig Harbor, southwest of Seattle.

Gig Harbor police opened their investigation in October 2018 after Jean Kasem had filed a report from a private investigator claiming that three of the children of Casey Kasem from an earlier marriage were responsible for the death of the radio presenter.

Gig Harbor Police Chief Kelly Busey said the administrative investigation found no evidence of a crime.

They also discovered that Casey received appropriate care and that all medical decisions were made by family authorized to act on his behalf, Busey said.

There was also no evidence of collusion between family members and doctors that any part of this incident would be considered a murder, the department said in a statement.

The two daughters of Kasem told KOMO that they feel justified by the findings of the police at the time of the announcement.

& # 39; We are very grateful to the police for conducting this investigation and conclude that there is no evidence to support Jean's wildly ridiculous claims & # 39 ;, Julie Kasem told the TV station.

It was the latest development in years of legal dispute between Jean Kasem and her three stepchildren.

The groups fought over visitation access to Casey Kasem before his death, with his daughter Kerri Kasem taking over control of his medical care.

Kasem had been married to the announcer for more than 30 years, but was deprived of control of his medical care in the last days of his life.

He died in June 2014 in Gig Harbor, where his wife had taken him after she checked him out of a medical facility in Los Angeles where he received 24-hour care.

Jean Kasem, 64, has argued that her decision to move her husband to the state of Washington was made to protect his privacy.

Prosecutors in Los Angeles County in 2015 refused to accuse Jean Kasem of elder abuse, Associated Press reported.

Days ago, however, it appeared that Jean Casem had filed an unlawful death against the lawyer of the radio legend, Samuel D. Ingham III.

Judicial documents seen through Fox news accuse Ingham of conspiring with the adult children of Kasem & # 39; to isolate and kill Casey Kasem for financial gain. & # 39;

The new lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County claims that & # 39; the older adult children of Ingham and Casey caused Casey to starve in a strange hospital away from home without his wife of more than three decades and the youngest daughter (Liberty Kasem) by his side. & # 39;

Kasem was best known as the host of the music countdown program & # 39; American Top 40 & # 39; and as the voice of Shaggy in the cartoon classic Scooby Doo.

But towards the end of his life, his family made headlines while fighting for his estate and final resting place – and accused both parties of contributing to his death.

The family feud was uncovered in a 48-hour episode broadcast in November 2018.

At the time, she claimed that the adult children of Kasem were only interested in their father's money – and he ended up financially.
