QUAID AND HIS WIFE JAILED
Posted 7:53pm 04/26/10
Actor RANDY QUAID and his wife have been jailed after testing the legal limits of California lawmakers with a series of court no-shows. The Brokeback Mountain star and his wife Evi were in court in Santa Barbara on Monday (26Apr10), and were jailed to make sure they returned for a hearing into their 2009 fraud and burglary case on Wednesday (28Apr10). Superior Court Judge Frank Ochoa told the couple they had been disrespectful by refusing to show up for arranged court dates, including one they missed earlier this month (Apr10), and had them taken into custody. He set bail at $100,000 (£62,500). The Quaids were arrested in September (09) after failing to pay a $10,000 (£6,250) hotel bill following a stay at the San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara. Arrest warrants were issued for the couple when Quaid and his wife failed to show up in court on 12 April (10). They have had a number of warrants issued for their arrest over past court no-shows - each one was later quashed. The pair ignored five orders to appear in court last year before pleading not guilty to all charges in December (09). (KL/WNWC/CL) *WENN
