Behind Bars

Randy and Evi Quaid Locked Up

No, this isn’t the plot of a far-fetched comedy: Randy Quaid and his wife Evi were sent directly to jail Monday, after turning up for an overdue court hearing in Santa Barbara, California. The couple had been charged with a felony after spending the night in a hotel and taking off without paying the $10,000-plus bill; a warrant for their arrest was sent out following the incident. The couple’s plight only got worse from there, as Judge Frank Ochoa issued another warrant for their arrest after they failed to meet a court date. When they finally showed up Monday, the judge wasted little time in locking them up, with a $100,000 bail each. "The judge was not very pleased with them," a deputy district attorney told E! News. "He thought they were disrespectful to the court, didn't appreciate the prior problems getting to court when the case started and didn't like them flashing their Golden Globe around at the last court appearance." A followup hearing has been called to determine if their case will go to trial.
