Randy And Evi Quaid Lose $1 Million After Failing To Show At Court

American actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi Quaid have forfeited $1 million in bail bonds after failing to show up for their latest court date, less than a month after they missed their previous hearing, reports the New York Post.
The couple, who were scheduled to appear in court on charges of felony burglary, failed to attend the hearing in Santa Barbara California yesterday (16th November 2010). They were previously scheduled to appear in court on October 18th 2010 on the same charges, and after failing to attend, the judge issued a warrant for their arrest. The Quaids have been the subject of much media attention in recent months due to their strange behaviour. After initially being arrested for 'squatting' in a home that did not belong to them, the couple claimed they were the next intended victims on a 'Hollywood death list', which, they say, had already caused the deaths of Heather Ledger, Chris Penn, and David Carradine.
The couple's lawyer, Bob Sanger, told the judge yesterday that the Quaids had not appeared because Randy's passport had been confiscated by Canadian authorities after he attempted to claim asylum there. Warrants for the couple's arrest are still in effect, and Judge Donna Geck said that the $500,000 bail bonds placed on both individuals had now been forfeited

Randy and Evi never said people were out to kill them. That was the media spinning the "star whackers" comment, about which, Randy said this: "What I mean by star whacking…it's not killing somebody necessarily. It's creating a scandal or mystery around a celebrity that discredits them." And who can dispute him on that? The press has spun every statement and event in their criminal case against them. They said he didn't pay his bills when he had, they said he didn't still own his property when, apparently he did. Now, even this article states that his $1 million bond has been forfeited. Not true. A bondsman posted that money and if Randy and Evi appear within the next six months (in which a bondsman has to get the money back under California law) no one forfeits anything. What the judge means is that Randy and Evi "forfeit" the right to stay free on that particular bond ... not the $1 million, which is not theirs to begin with! Get the facts straight!
