Quaids Fight Back Over Squatting Claims

RANDY and EVI QUAID are fighting back against allegations they have been squatting in a house they call their home - insisting they have fallen victim to an elaborate fraud.
The Quaids were arrested at the house in Santa Barbara, California on Saturday (18Sep10) and face charges of felony residential burglary and a misdemeanour of entering a non-commercial building without consent after officials received a complaint.
The couple told cops they had owned the estate since the 1990s, but officers had been handed documentation said to prove the current owner had bought the home from another buyer in 2007, who had reportedly purchased the house from the Quaids years earlier.
The pair has since been released on bail after posting $50,000 (£33,330) each.
Brokeback Mountain star Quaid has now vowed to fight for the property, because he insists the couple has been targeted in a scam, reports TMZ.com.
Quaid alleges fraudsters forged the signature of a dead woman called Ronda Quaid on a legal document in 1992, wrongfully transferring the ownership of the property to a third party.
He claims he can prove the allegation, telling the website, "If you don't stick up for what's yours, and defend what's yours ... what are you?"
