Randy Quaid & His Wife Evi Arrested at Vermont Border, Accused of Fleeing Canada Ahead of His Deportation Hearing
BIZARRE, JUST BIZARRE …
Randy Quaid and his wife Evi were arrested as “fugitives from justice” Friday night at the Vermont and Canada border in an apparent attempt to leave Canada before Quaid’s deportation back to the United States. The two were detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents at the Vermont point of entry in Highgate at about 8 p.m. Quaid and his wife were taken into custody by troopers, where a judge set bail at $500,000 each. Randy Quaid had previously been denied permanent residency in Canada.
Randy Quaid was being held at the North West State Correctional Center and Evi Quaid at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility. According to an interview with the AP, the 65-year-old actor said from a detention center in Laval, Quebec, on Wednesday that he would like to resolve his legal issues in California and “move on with my life.” Quaid and his wife fled to Canada because Quaid is wanted in Santa Barbara, California, to face felony vandalism charges filed in 2010 after he and his wife, Evi, were found squatting in a guesthouse of a home they previously owned.
Who knew Quaid’s role as Cousin Eddie from the Vacation films was spot on to his real life persona as a wing-nut?
Randy Quaid and his wife were arrested as “fugitives from justice” Friday night at the border between Vermont and Canada, apparently attempting to leave Canada days before Quaid’s deportation back to the United States, PEOPLE has confirmed.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents detained Quaid and his wife, Evi, at the Vermont point of entry in Highgate at about 8 p.m. local time, according to a press release from state police.
Agents determined the Quaids were “fugitives from justice” from California, where they are wanted in connection with a felony vandalism case.
Who finds it rather ironic that Border patrol is able to arrest these two on the US-Canadian Border but some how agents cannot seem to do the same on the United States-Mexico? Maybe Quaid and his wife should have crossed the Southern border instead.
