You may recall last year when Randy Quaid and his wife Evi, a former Helmut Newton model, wreaked havoc on the Broadway production of Lone Star Love by bitching about everything, spying on his co-workers, and flashing his cod piece around constantly on stage, among other things, leading the show’s producers to shut the whole thing down during out of town previews. Quaid was also kicked out of the Actor’s Equity union for life and his wife had a restraining order filed against her by the private detective she hired to spy on her husband’s Lone Star Love castmates. Now the Quaids are wanted by the law for a string of incidents in which they allegedly stiffed pricey hotels by bailing without paying the bill.
There’s an arrest warrant out for the Quaids for allegedly stiffing the San Ysidro Ranch near Santa Barbara out of thousands of bucks. Our sources say the reason there’s a burglary warrant out for them is because cops believe when they rented the hotel room they had the intention of staying without paying — and that fits the definition of burglary.
Our law enforcement sources tell us the reason they believe the Quaids were scamming the San Ysidro Ranch from the get-go is because they have evidence they’ve done it before. Our sources say the Quaids stiffed the uber-ritzy Bel Air Hotel in L.A., among other places.
In addition to burglary, the arrest warrant also lists the felony of defrauding an innkeeper.
Based solely upon the Quaid’s recent history of jackassery, it’s hard not to believe they wouldn’t do such things. How Randy and Dennis Quaid came from the same parents continues to baffle the hell out of me.
