Mickey Rooney was granted a temporary restraining order against his stepson on Tuesday after accusing him of withholding food and medicine, the Associated Press reported.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz granted the stay-away order after Rooney's attorneys told the court the actor lived in fear of his stepson, Chris Aber. Aber is required to stay 100 yards away from the Academy Award-nominated actor and isn't allowed to contact him until the next hearing, scheduled for Feb. 24.

"Chris is verbally abusive toward Mickey," the official court filing states. "He yells and screams at Mickey. He threatens, intimidates, bullies, and harasses Mickey. Mickey is effectively a prisoner in his own home."

In addition to the restraining order, Rooney's attorneys also obtained temporary conservatorship over his financial assets.
