Randy and Evi Quaid Arrested in Canada


Actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi have been arrested in Vancouver for alleged Immigration Act violations, the CBC is reporting.

The arrest follows a California judge issuing $50,000 warrants against the couple after they failed to show up to a Santa Barbara court hearing on Monday.

Vancouver police issued a statement on Friday saying that an unnamed couple, which the CBC identified as the Quaids, was arrested on Wednesday afternoon.

"While checking the identity of a man and a woman at that location, they learned that the two were wanted on outstanding warrants from the United States," the police statement said.

The couple was turned over to the Canada Border Services agency and was due to appear before the Immigration Refugee Board on Friday afternoon.

The Quaids are facing felony burglary charges and misdemeanor counts after allegedly moving back into and damaging a home they once owned in Santa Barbara, CA.
