Wetcoaster Posted October 22, 2010 Share Posted October 22, 2010 Randy Quaid and his wife were arrested by Vancouver Police Department (VPD) officers when they discovered he was wanted in California on outstanding warrants. The VPD officers turned them over to Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers and they were brought before an Immigration Adjudicator for a detention-review hearing. Quaid and his wife could be issued a departure notice or could possibly a deportation order. Hollywood actor Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, have been arrested in Vancouver on outstanding warrants from the United States. The couple were whisked into a detention-review hearing before the Immigration and Refugee Board on Friday, past a cluster of about 20 reporters and photographers. Vancouver police say they got a call for assistance on Thursday and while checking the identities of a man and woman, they learned they were wanted on outstanding warrants. Postmedia News has confirmed that the couple are Quaid and his wife. Vancouver police turned the couple over to the Canada Border Services Agency. Arrest warrants were issued for the couple after they reportedly failed to show up for a court hearing in Santa Barbara, California, on allegations they were squatting in the guest house of a home they once owned. The formerly Oscar-nominated Quaid is best-known for his role as Cousin Eddie in the National Lampoon's Vacation movies, but he has also held supporting roles in such Hollywood blockbusters as Brokeback Mountain, Kingpin and Independence Day. Quaid's arrest comes one day after Duane Chapman — better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter — threatened to come after the fugitive. "I hope Randy Quaid and his wife are watching right now," said Chapman, a reality TV star and bounty hunter, while appearing on the Lopez Tonight, a late-night TV show hosted by comedian George Lopez. "We're announcing that he has a chance to call these authorities to turn himself in," Chapman said. "At least do it for your wife and for how you were raised. If not, the Chapman family is coming after you." He said Quaid has been struggling lately and was not himself. "We need to do, like, an intervention, Dog-style." http://www.theprovin...3231/story.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
