Randy and Evi Quaid were jailed for a short while on Monday after showing up to court two weeks late for a criminal case. The Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department said in a news release that they were let go after posting $100,000 bail each. The couple was told to return for a court hearing on Wednesday.
The Quaids have been on the run for a while now after repeatedly failing to show up for their felony case hearings. It has been alleged that they defrauded an inn – the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito – out of more than $10,000 using an invalid credit card, and they’ve also have been charged with burglary and conspiracy and have pleaded not guilty. The Quaids spent less than four hours in custody.
Their attorney, Robert Sanger, has said the money has been repaid and the Quaids hope to resolve the case without a trial. Sanger on Monday declined to comment on the case or say why the couple didn’t appear as scheduled earlier this month. The case has been ongoing since September.
