Randy and Evi Quaid Face Felony Charges at Santa Barbara County Courthouse


Actor Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, finally, after several no shows over the past few months, made it to Santa Barbara Superior Court to face felony charges of defrauding the San Ysidro Ranch out of a $10,000 bill.

The couple, who posted bail after being arrested in Texas over the weekend, pleaded not guilty to the charges and will return to court on March 1. After the arraignment, Evi taped her credit card to her forehead while Randy pinned a fake badge to his suit. Neither spoke to the media.
