December 26, 2009

The Quaids’ arrest took place just before the holidays. They plead “not guilty” to felony charges relating to unpaid hotel stays. Find out more details and see photos and a video here.

Christmas with The Quaids? Not so much. In fact, their arrest comes as no surprise after the couple were seen leaving Marfa, Texas and were arrested.

According to reports, there were bench warrants pending for the couple regarding their failure to appear in court for allegedly not paying a Santa Barbara hotel. Authorities arrested Evi on Saturday, and Randy on Sunday. But this was no easy task.

When cops tried to take both parties into custody, Randy’s arrest warrant was apparently inaccurate. However, when officials attempted to apprehend both parties, Randy Quaid’s arrest warrant was reportedly inaccurate. So they arrested Evi and left the actor behind to chase later after obtaining the correct information necessary to apprehend him.

Officers quickly fixed the incorrect information relating to the warrant and returned to cuff the agitated actor and transported him to Brewster County Jail where he later posted bond and was released.

The Quaids maintain their innocence alleging that this is all misconstrued and that the media has relayed much unsubstantiated information.

The pair was arrested on a felony warrant for burglary, conspiracy, and defrauding an innkeeper back in September in Marfa, Texas. The Santa Barbara authorities received a complaint regarding them using an invalid credit card to pay a $10,000 bill at the San Ysidro Ranch. Reportedly, the Quaids have paid back that debt to the ranch.

Hopefully, all situations relating to the Quaids arrest can be cleared up in a court of law so that they can carry on in their eccentric lives. Leave us your thoughts in the comment box and see pictures and a film here.
