Randy Quaid Arrested

Celebrity Accused of Ducking San Ysidro Ranch Bill

Randy Quaid and his wife Evi have been arrested for dashing out on their lofty bill at the San Ysidro Ranch earlier this month. The two were arrested in Marfa, Texas after the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s department issued a warrant for their arrest. The Sheriff’s press release said Texas authorities reported that Evi Quaid engaged in a struggle with police during the arrest. The two are being held at the Presidio County Sheriffs Department.

The couple’s San Ysidro Ranch hotel bill was more than $10,000, according to the Sheriff’s statement, and bail was set at about $20,000 for each of the Quaids. The charges against the couple include conspiracy, burglary and defrauding an innkeeper. It is unclear whether they will be extradited back to Santa Barbara County.
