Randy and Evi Quaid facing extradition
October 11, 2015
The Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office is working to extradite actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi Quaid to face charges of felony vandalism.
In 2010, the couple fled to Canada after they were charged with breaking into a Montecito home they previously owned. The Quaids are accused of causing $5,000 worth of damage.
Canadian officials had planned to deport Randy Quaid on Oct. 14.
Rather than wait to be deported, the Quaids attempted to cross into the United States last week. On Friday, the Vermont State Police arrested the pair as they attempted to cross into Vermont.
The Quaids are being held on $500,000 bail each on California warrant charges of felony vandalism, misdemeanor, trespass, and felony failure to appear in court. On Monday, they are scheduled to appear in a Vermont State Court.
Randy Quaid has stared in multiple films including “National Lampoon” and “Independence Day.”
