Randy Quaid Arrested Crossing U.S. Border from Canada

Highgate, VT

Actor Randy Quaid was arrested by Vermont State troopers Friday night while allegedly attempting to cross into the United States from Canada.

The 65-year-old and his wife Evi reportedly fled the U.S. after a California judge issued warrants for their arrest. The pair have been facing felony vandalism and burglary charges in Santa Barbara after they allegedly were unlawfully staying in the guesthouse of a home they once owned, according to The New York Daily News.

The Daily News reports that troopers detained Quaid at the Highgate Springs port of entry, just days after the Canadian government said he would be deported.

A judge has set bail at $500,000 for both Quaid and his wife. Randy is being held at the Northwest State Correctional Center, while Evi is detained at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility in Vermont.

Randy Quaid applied for permanent residency in Canada, but that request was denied in 2012.

The actor was arrested in Montreal earlier this year after he quit checking in with border authorities.

Quaid was released, but agreed to check in with authorities every two weeks.

He and Evi were facing deportation on October 14 and will likely face extradition to California.
