DA Looks to Extradite Quaids

The District Attorney’s Office has submitted a request to the Department of Justice to make an application for the extradition of actor Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, who fled to Canada after facing felony squatting and vandalism charges related to a September 2010 incident in a Montecito home. Getting the couple back to court would allow a bond insurance company that fronted the Quaids $1 million in bail money to get its money back.
