Actor Randy Quaid has been granted his release from a Montreal-area immigration detention centre after being arrested last week.
According to Global News, the National Lampoon’s Vacation star and wife Evi have been living “under the radar” in Montreal since early 2013. Quaid was placed under arrest on Thursday when the actor — who has an outstanding warrant for his arrest after he missed a scheduled 2013 meeting with the Immigration and Refugee Board — was recognized entering a house.
The 64-year-old actor — who now sports a long, greying beard — had fled to Vancouver in 2010 after facing several criminal charges in the U.S., and sought refugee status in Canada by claiming his life was in danger from “Hollywood star-whackers” that he feared would assassinate him.
Quaid was released from detention today when his father-in-law agreed to put up a $10,000 bond. In addition, terms of his release include ensuring he keeps the Canada Border Service Agency apprised of his whereabouts.
10,000 whole dollars when this actor has made many millions. No doubt he’ll skip out again!
A greedy rich person who blew all his money? Geez, republicans are getting crazier by the year.
