Arrest Warrant Dropped for Randy Quaid, Wife

The couple, accused of skipping out on a hefty hotel bill, post $20,000 bail each

An arrest warrant issued for actor Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, has been dropped after the couple posted $20,000 bail each last week, according to the Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office.

The couple had missed three court appearances when a bench warrant was issued nearly two weeks ago by Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge Clifford Anderson.

The Quaids are facing allegations that they left Santa Barbara’s San Ysidro Ranch without paying for their stay. The couple reportedly have settled up with the hotel, but they have yet to enter a plea.

According to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department, the Quaids are facing felony charges of burglary, defrauding an innkeeper and conspiracy.

A judge issued warrants when the case was brought forward by the District Attorney’s Office, and the couple were arrested in Marfa, Texas, on Sept. 24. They were released after each posted $20,000 bail.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
