Randy and Evi Quaid showed up in a criminal courtroom two weeks late Monday and were arrested on outstanding warrants, authorities said.
The actor and his wife were ordered held on $100,000 bail and told to return for a court hearing on Wednesday, Senior Deputy District Attorney Lee Carter said in an email.
The couple repeatedly failed to show up in a Santa Barbara court for hearings in a felony case alleging they defrauded an inn out of more than $10,000. They have pleaded not guilty, and their attorney said the money has been repaid.
But the couple’s repeated missed appearances cost them $40,000 in bail that they forfeited after missing an April 12 hearing. Warrants for the Quaids’ arrest were issued after they didn’t show up the following day, either.
