I don't envy the guy who took Randy Quaid into custody.
Randy Quaid, left, at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008.
We have confirmed Quaid and his wife were picked up in the Southwest Texas town of Marfa today for allegedly skipping out on a $10,000 plus hotel bill at a ritzy resort in Santa Barbara, California.
It would take courage to slap the cuffs on Quaid. He's huge.
When we interviewed him at the Sundance Film Festival a couple of years ago he showed up in a floor-length fur coat. He took up the entire doorway. A wag on our staff promptly dubbed him "Sasquatch."
In that coat he certainly did resemble a giant furry beast. Wintry Utah (Sundance is held in January in Park City) seemed like an appropriate place to spot a yeti. So I'm not sure what he was doing in South Texas, where this weekend the temperatures are supposed to be in the 80s.
