  • Actor Randy Quaid and his wife are arrested

    September 24, 2009 | 5:36 pm

    After allegedly skipping out on a Santa Barbara hotel bill earlier this month, actor Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, were arrested Thursday near Marfa, Texas.

    Hours earlier, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department had obtained a warrant for their arrest, accusing them of running up a tab of more than $10,000 at an unidentified hotel.

    Department spokesman Drew Sugars said Evi Quaid apparently put up a struggle during the arrest but "was quickly restrained.'

    It was not clear whether the couple would be extradited to Santa Barbara, Sugars said.

        Yes -- then he might have made enough money to pay the bill!

              So, I'm reaing the daily paper and it said he and his wife posted bail. (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/0..._n_299567.html)

              Quote: Quaid and his wife, Evi, each posted $20,000 Thursday night after spending several hours in the jail in Marfa, Presidio County Sheriff Danny Dominguez told The Associated Press.

              Now I'm thinking, um...yea... they had 20k each to post bail, but they didn't have 10k to pay for a hotel?????

                Yeah but bail bondsmen take only ten percent, so that would be $4K for the two of them, right?

                One quick call to Dennis Quaid, the more successful Quaid brother, and perhaps the whole amount was posted.

                  True, but I was confused cause the article quoted: "Dominguez said he drove the actor to a bank to obtain the bail money."

                  Even at 10 percent each, that's $8k total. And I'm sure they also have credit cards. However, I wonder why the article didn't state how much they actually used to bail out. Though, I am sure it is only 10 percent as you stated.

                    Yeah, I responded without remembering that quote. But let me add this, we don't know if the money was already in the account or was it transferred, there, by little brother, Dennis.

                      +2. Agreed. And also, I suppose they are using a 'public defender'?? Unless Dennis got them a private attorney???

                        Good criminals belong in jail. Too bad that they have the right to reasonable bail.

                          "Quaid and his wife, Evi, each posted $20,000 Thursday night after spending several hours in the jail in Marfa, Presidio County Sheriff Danny Dominguez said.

                          Dominguez said he drove the actor to a bank to obtain the bail money. Quaid, 58, remained in his custody during the trip but was not handcuffed. The sheriff said the actor received no special treatment.

                          "I like to help everybody out," Dominguez said. "It's a small town.
                          "


                          Yea, right. I'm sure Sheriff Dominguez drives all the arrestees in his town to the banks so they can obtain bail. He probably accepts personal checks too. FWIW: The earlier articles indicated Quaid's wife resisted the arresting officer(s) attempt to handcuff her, but those charges were dropped.

                          Anyone care to guess how long it takes for the framed, autographed photo of the "suspects" and the sheriff to appear in his office?

                            Maybe the sheriff did not want to have to pay overtime to keep the jail open, especially with a female prisoner.

                            Presidio County, TX
                            The county was named for the settlement of Presidio del Norte

                            Presidio County is one of 254 counties in Texas. The estimated population in 2004 was 7,639. This was an increase of 4.59% from the 2000 census.
                            In 2002, the per capita personal income in Presidio County was $14,435. This was an increase of 25.9% from 1997. The 2002 figure was 47% of the national per capita income, which was $30,906.

                            · Mexican - 80%
                            · Other Hispanic or Latino - 5%
                            · German - 3%
                            · Irish - 3%
                            · English - 2%
                            · Scottish - 1%


                            Marfa is a city in Presidio County.

                            It is the county seat.

                            The community was named for one of Fyodor Dostoevski's fictional characters. However, there is some dispute about whether the name is a reference to Crime and Punishment or to The Brothers Karamazov; both books include a character named "Marfa"

                            The latitude of Marfa is 30.307N. The longitude is -104.018W.
                            It is in the Central Standard time zone. Elevation is 4,685 feet.
                            The estimated population, in 2003, was 2,029.

                              I was kind of thinking the same thing.... I guarantee not too many inmates have the luxury of the sheriff driving them to the bank to make a withdrawal to pay for bail, not that majority of them (inmates) are worth the drive and time anyways, especially not these two ding bats....
