Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of Randy Quaid and his wife Eva on charges that the two have been staying at expensive hotels and bailing on the bill. TMZ reports:
There’s an arrest warrant out for the Quaids for allegedly stiffing the San Ysidro Ranch near Santa Barbara out of thousands of bucks. Our sources say the reason there’s a burglary warrant out for them is because cops believe when they rented the hotel room they had the intention of staying without paying — and that fits the definition of burglary.
Our law enforcement sources tell us the reason they believe the Quaids were scamming the San Ysidro Ranch from the get-go is because they have evidence they’ve done it before. Our sources say the Quaids stiffed the uber-ritzy Bel Air Hotel in L.A., among other places.
In addition to burglary, the arrest warrant also lists the felony of defrauding an innkeeper.
“The felony of defrauding an innkeeper?” Goddammit, when are these old-timey laws going to stop ruining everyone’s good time? For once I’d like to live in a free country where I can practice my love of disrobed haberdashery and equine copulation. ‘Tis poppycock, I say!
