Randy Quaid, Evi Quaid

Marfa Police Department

Has Randy Quaid actually turned into Cousin Eddie? Given his bizarro behavior as of late, we're starting to wonder.

An APB was put out today for the Vacation star and his wife, Evi Quaid,after they failed to show up to a Santa Barbara, Calif., courtroom Monday to face criminal charges for their bill-dodging case. Not even their lawyer, who swore to the judge they had promised to show up, knew their whereabouts.

Maybe they went to Wally World.

Despite the best efforts of their Los Angeles-based attorney, Robert Sanger, to talk the judge down, a bench warrant was issued for the Quaids' arrest.

The case has been continued until either the Quaids voluntarily come in or until police haul them in—whichever comes first.

Care to place a bet on how that turns out?

There was no further comment today from Sanger but the prosecutor, Santa Barbara Assistant District Attorney Arnold Tolks, told E! News he's not expecting much.

"They [the Quaids] don't talk to me," Tolks said. "Their attorney's representative said yesterday in court that they were in contact with him and he indicated they were on the way in but that didn't happen. I don't have any other inside information. Right now the warrant is out. . .[but] who knows? They could pop their heads up at any moment."

The constantly on-the-lam duo were originally supposed to show up in court March 3, but that date was pushed back.

The Quaids face misdemeanor charges of burglary, defrauding an innkeeper and conspiracy for their trouble-causing stay at the San Ysidro Ranch last fall.

Despite belatedly paying the $10,000 to the resort's owner, their failure to properly deal with the matter in the first place led to warrants for their arrest. The pair were finally collared in their native Texas and freed after posting a $40,000 bond, which was upped by an additional $20,000 each after their arraignment.


Someone should give the Quaids their own reality show. Then they can be added to E! Online's Dangerous Reality TV gallery.
