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.

If they can go to the bank and withdraw enough to pay $20,000 each, why not just pay the hotel bill? Better still, seeing that they were arrested while staying in another hotel, why the hell not just stay at home....if he has one which I am sure he does...unless he is in that area making a movie. Go buy a camper already Quaid! What some people will do to keep themselves in the news.

it's state law in texas that even if the troopers don't file charges the state must pick them i ask...does this apply to someone who has been in films or just to everyone else?

Well thank God these violent offenders are off the streets and hotel room service everywhere is safe to overcharge once again!

Like I said yesterday Bonnie and Clyde 2009 version. I got a strong feeling that this is just the beginning for these two. Evi seems like a umm ummm really "interesting" gal. This is serious, but for some reason I cannot stop laughing.

Free Bonnie and Clyde!!!!

If anyone else had assaulted a police officer or resisted arrest they would have been charged. Must be nice to be a 'celebrity'.
