Actor Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, have run into legal trouble once again – the couple was arrested Saturday after police were called to a Montecito, California residence to investigate a report of squatters.
According to a press release from the Santa Barbara Sheriff's department, a representative for the owner of the property came by the house to check the security alarm because it had gone off earlier that day, and then discovered that someone had been resting their head in the property’s guest house.
The Quaids weren’t around at the time, but upon their return later that evening the couple told the police that they have “owned the property since the 1990’s." According to the statement, the owners had documentation that someone had purchased the property from the Quaids several years earlier.
A contractor who worked on the residence believes the couple caused more than $5,000 in damages in the guest house, and the Quaids were taken into custody for residential burglary. Bail is set at $50,000 a piece.
