Actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi appear to have lost it. The couple, who have been skipping court dates and have been arrested many times for suspicious activities, told Canada's immigration board Friday they are seeking refuge in Canada because they are being persecuted in the US because they were arrested on US warrants related to vandalism charges. What has gotten into this whacky pair?!
According to iamROGUE, the Quaids were arrested on Thursday afternoon in a shopping area of an affluent Vancouver neighborhood. The couple is wanted in Santa Barbara, where they missed a court hearing Monday on felony vandalism charges.
But wait...it gets better. Evi Quaid begged a Canadian immigration official not to force them to return, saying that too many of her husband's actor friends have died under mysterious circumstances and she's worried something will happen to him next. Schizophrenic, anyone? Seriously, those are some paranoid delusions right there. I wonder who she is speaking about.
Furthermore, Mrs. Quaid said she's been told by a jail nurse that her blood pressure is dangerously high due to stress and that Randy Quaid's mother has been hospitalized in the US as a result of the stress from their legal troubles. Okay, so help Ma Quaid (and yourself) by facing the music –er, the law— back in your home country.
The Quaids said they came to Canada for legitimate reasons and had no intention of skipping out on a warrant issued for their arrest in the United States. Suuuuuuuure they went to Canadian for legit reasons. Suuuuuuuure they had no intention of skipping out on the warrant.
What is your assessment of the Quaid situation? What the hell has gotten into Randy Quaid, who had a terrific serious turn in Brokeback Mountain a few years back?
