Randy Quaid and wife still in Vancouver jail

Couple remains in custody despite $10,000 bail

by

Actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi are still in custody in Vancouver. They were cleared for release on $10,000 bail last Friday, but they have not been released; Canada Border Services Agency representatives refused to comment on why they continue to be detained. Quaid has been blackballed from acting in the U.S. ever since his union banned him for misconduct, and he and his wife recently fled the U.S. to escape charges for illegally living in a house they used to own; they were arrested in Vancouver due to the U.S. warrants that were issued for them. The Quaids are asking for refugee status, claiming that they face retaliation from the “Hollywood star-whackers” who killed Quaid’s ‘Brokeback Mountain’ co-star Heath Ledger.
