Randy and Evi Quaid may be out of jail, but they’re not out of the woods.
After a Vermont judge dismissed charges against the couple, the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office said it still has a warrant for the Quaids’ arrest.
Quaid said he hopes for an acting comeback, or maybe he’d like to be a volunteer firefighter.
ABC News, which aired an interview with the actor and his Canadian wife, quoted Santa Barbara authorities as saying if the couple leaves Vermont and tries to enter another state, “We expect they will be arrested.”
Randy Quaid said the judge’s decision felt “like finally somebody understands our situation” and “it’s a very big relief to have been vindicated to a great extent.”
“The Quaids are still wanted in Santa Barbara on felony charges filed in 2010 after they were found living in a guesthouse of a home they previously owned, with court papers saying they damaged or destroyed parts of the guesthouse,” ABC summarized Friday. “The couple fled to Canada and were arrested in Vermont last Friday when they tried to re-enter the U.S.”
Randy Quaid also said he hopes to make an acting comeback, telling viewers, “I’d just like to thank everyone for all of their nice thoughts, and I hope you’ll see me out there real soon on the big screen or the small screen or Netflix or wherever it may be.”
And in a much-discussed remark, Quaid says he wants to help the Vermont community by becoming a volunteer fireman. The judge’s Vermont decision came Thursday.
