Randy and Evi Quaid Jailed
Actor Randy Quaid (brother of more famous and better looking Dennis Quaid) and his wife Evi were arrested and jailed today after finally showing up for court in Santa Barbara.
Apparently the judge, Frank Ochoa, was NOT in the mood for their tomfoolery and had the two arrested and put in the clink after they'd missed several court dates in their felony case. When the couple failed to appear on April 12, a warrant was issued for their arrest.
The original issue arose when Randy and Evi skipped out of paying their bill at the ritzy San Ysidro Ranch. They were arrested in September of 2009 in Texas and their strange behavior since has been chronicled in the tabloids. They are accused of racking up a $10,000 bill at the California resort and then not paying. Though they've since paid the bill, it was a too little, too late.
Adding to their bizarre antics, which succeeded in irritating the judge, was the couple showing up to a previous hearing with Randy's Golden Globe, in an effort to impress the court — which it did NOT. SHUT DOWN!
SB District Attorney, Arnie Tolks stated:
"They came to court this morning hoping that Judge Ochoa would forgive them for not showing up a couple weeks ago, but the judge said they showed disrespect by prior failures to appear and by flashing Randy's Golden Globe award in court the last time around. They both apologized to the court, but the judge obviously didn't take it lightly."
Somehow, the broke down Quaids managed to post the $100,000 bail (each) three hours later.
We'll keep you posted of any further developments...like if they both sprout wings and fly to Pluto, which in this case, is a real probability.
