Famous star Randy Quaid and his spouse Evi Quaid had charges pending against them. They were accused of forced entry and willful destruction of their previously owned Montecito residence. This incident occurred some three odd years ago. Now, they are to get a court hearing regarding their $500,000 bail bonds.
A technical glitch had occurred regarding the bail bond. And the Quaids as a couple had filed a lawsuit against American Surety, the bond company that had been responsible for their problems in the first place. They say that the said company had been causal in their troubles in relation to the two $500,000 bail bonds which had been issued without their approval. The matter is more complex than meets the eye. All the transactions between the company and the Quaids amount to a web of machinations for which both share the credit.
According to Independent, "The hearing put into effect a state court of appeal’s ruling that the $500,000 bond for Randy will be rescinded due to a procedural error, while the bond company — American Surety — remains on the hook to the Santa Barbara Superior Court for the $500,000 bond for Evi, according to county counsel Mike Ghizzoni and deputy county counsel Sarah McElhinney. Ghizzoni added that although the Santa Barbara Superior Court has ruled on this issue, “more litigation on this matter” may occur in the future."
"On Wednesday, April 10, the Quaids filed a lawsuit in Indiana against American Surety — which is based in that state — alleging that the company issued the two original $50,000 bonds for their arrest without their consent."
The couple had previously run away to Canada to escape the charges. And the statement that they were guilty as charged remains. Among the charges are those of squatting and felony vandalism. They reportedly smashed a looking glass in the house. Then they displaced odds and ends of furniture.
Finally, they are also accused of carving out the letters RQ into the mailbox. The two also did not allow their arrest to take place which places them dangerously close to a major violation of the law. And he who provokes the law takes a wolf by the ears. Since Randy’s wife is a native Canadian, he had requested Canadian citizenship.
This plea had been rejected though. The couple has also been behaving vey oddly of late. They are said to be schizophrenic and involved in a folie a deux. Evi was spotted donning a credit card on her face while her husband had a faux sheriff’s ID. They claimed that they were in hiding from a group that killed actors and actresses. Well, what can we say to that!?
