My, Oh My! Brokeback Mountain and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation‘s 60 year old Randy Quaid has been arrested here in Vancouver, along with his 47 year old wife, Evi. Bench warrants for the amount of $50,000 were issued earlier this week by a Santa Barbara judge, due to the fact that they skipped an arraignment hearing in a felony burglary case. Wowsas! Quaid is an Oscar-nominated actor, for his role in the 1973 film, The Last Detail.
They are appearing for a hearing at 2 p.m. PT this afternoon (Friday) before the Immigration and Refugee Board. Serious stuff! The VPD were called for assistance on Wednesday to a south Vancouver address as they had been informed there was a man and woman wanted on outstanding warrants in the U.S.
So what are the two accused of? Squatting in the guest house of a Montecito home they once owned in the 1990s. To make matters worse, his wife is also charged with resisting arrest.
