Randy and Evi Quaid

Arrested After Struggle

9/24/2009 6:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Randy Quaid and his wife Evi were just arrested in Marfa, Texas, TMZ has learned.


Law enforcement sources tell us they were picked up by Presidio County Sheriff's deputies. We're told there was a struggle and deputies had to wrestle Evi to the ground as she screamed loudly.

Felony arrest warrants had been issued for the Quaids in Santa Barbara, CA for burglary, defrauding an innkeeper and conspiracy. They're accused of stiffing the San Ysidro Ranch near Santa Barbara out of thousands of bucks.

UPDATE: Presidio County Sheriff's deputies tell us Randy assaulted them both physically and verbally and resisted arrest, but they will not file charges. We're also told the Sheriff's Office is in touch with officials in Santa Barbara County, who want Randy and Evi extradited.

UPDATE: We're told it was Evi who verbally and physically assaulted the officer -- she was eventually wrestled onto the hood of the cop car.

People check in the hospitals, are provided excellent services, incurr hundreds of thousands of dollars in bill and don't pay but they never get arrested. What a country.

They live in Marfa. Probably know the police and contribute to the department. That's why they were there and likely why no charges were filed. It's also very small, so are likely the biggest hometown celebrities they have.

#9 Jon Taylor: Normally spelling corrections annoy the crap out of me (after all, this isn't the New York Times). However, that was funny.

I checked through the comments before posting this, only person on their game is #25, how did he get the room without putting down cash or a credit card? In any hotel? Famous or not, it doens't make sence. San Ysidro Ranch is just as much at fault. I have stayed at many high end hotels and always check in using a credit card, but my last name isn't Quaid or Pitt.

Hillarious. Hollywood couple in their Prius get stopped and hauled to jail by a Sheriff's dept with fleet of crew cab pick ups. Only in Texas!

How long did those losers think they can get away with that? Time caught up with them.Since Randy Quaid is a celebrity,he and his wife will probably get a slap on the wrist.

I guess it would have been easier to pay the hotel bill, rather than risk getting arrested.
