Randy Quaid a no-show for felony vandalism case

A prosecutor says Randy Quaid and his wife have failed to show up at a court hearing stemming from their arrests last month on suspicion of illegally squatting at a home.

Santa Barbara Senior Deputy District Attorney Lee Carter says a judge issued $50,000 warrants for the couple after they failed to appear for an arraignment Monday on a felony vandalism charge.

Carter says the couple's case will be called again on Oct. 26.

Deputies arrested the Quaids at a Montecito home last month on suspicion that they were living in the guest house of a home they previously owned.

Their attorney on a previous criminal case, Robert Sanger, did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.
