Randy Quaid arrested crossing the border

Randy Quaid, aka Cousin Eddy (and really, who can tell the difference?), was arrested crossing into Vermont from Canada. He faces felony charges in California.

should have stayed in Canada where he was safe

they’re after him

You meant Jerry Garcia, right?

The Quaid saga is an interesting one. It seems like he and his wife share the same delusions. I wonder which one was began to influence the other? Seems like they may be suffering from this:

Cool beard, bro.

Yeah Randy has this delusion of being a star, lol! He’ll end up whacking himself.

Quaid was in the midst of being deported from Canada and apparently sought to avoid his inevitable arrest therefrom by sneaking into the country ahead of his deportation.

Since happening upon a sex tape Quaid uploaded to the internet some time back featuring a session between he and his wife (complete with incessantly barking dog) I’ve tried to think of Randy Quaid as little as possible. Unfortunately, now that he’s back in the U.S. I’m sure we’ll be hearing about him on a fairly regular basis for the foreseeable future.

Has his brother Dennis ever publicly commented on his brother’s travails?

From the very end of the article linked in the OP:

FWIW, I think the “expressing themselves” part is referring to what Randy told the AP, not Dennis.

edit- meaning “He told the AP” in the quote is Randy. The way I typed it isn’t clear

You realize you just admitted watching it, don’t you?

Yep, to my everlasting chagrin.

I read this article before, but can anyone sum-up the gist of his troubles. It says he’s wanted in California for vandalizing a guesthouse he & his wife once owned but were then squatting in. Is he broke? Can he not afford a lawyer? Or a home? Did he blow his money on drugs? Or are they just mentally ill (and un-medicated)? He was always an odd actor to be sure, but how long has he been full-blown Unabomber crazy?

there’s a conspiracy against him

a group called “The Hollywood Star Whackers” is trying to kill him

He made the situation much worse by jumping bail. Wiki also mentions an incident (a year earlier) where he didn’t pay a hotel bill and had charges in Texas. Seems like his money is running out.

Very strange. A previous thread on RQ and his weirdness: Is Randy Quaid going insane? - Cafe Society - Straight Dope Message Board

You serious, Clark?

Nice try America, but we’re not having that!

Try that shit again, and we’ll put up a wall, I swear!

We get Quaid. You get Bieber.

We pretend none of this has ever occurred.

Don’t you dare try to shove Rob Ford into this deal. He is your problem.

How’s about this, we’ll take Obama, he must be tired of all the grief and ready to wash his hands of the lot of you, and we’ll send you Harper! You’re gonna love him, already fluent in the politics of fear, isn’t afraid to re district, cozy with gun lobbyists, cold to Syrian refugees, doesn’t want the hijab! Oldish, tubby, could not be whiter! He’s just what you’ve been looking for, I’m telling you.

Your black, socialist, Muslim guy won’t even raise an eyebrow here. That man could get elected here, I’m pretty sure. And we don’t have those pesky term limits either. I’m just saying, might make a nice alternative to hanging out with Bill Clinton.

(That Beiber talk is just nonsense, he was just a kid with a YouTube video, till y’all turned into a teen idol. You’re a terrible influence, the lot of you. No take backs! You made him whatever he is today and now you have to keep him, and the same goes for Celine. )
