Randy and Evi Quaid really know how to up the ante when it comes to the crazy stakes.
Despite requesting the case to be put on calendar both Quaid’s were once again a no show in court Monday in Santa Barbara.
There was confusion in the court as the judge and DA pondered alike why the Quaids would have requested the case to be put on calendar just to not turn up again.
Judge Clifford Anderson said, ” The case was put back on calendar today when local counsel approached me with consent of Mr .Carter.
“But they are not here and so bench warrants remain out as they have since they were issued back in September. And this time we will not be putting case back on calendar until they definitely post bail or appear in person.”
District Attorney Lee Carter seemed less than impressed with the Quaid’s time wasting antics. “All bets are off,” he said. “I received the phone call this morning that the case was on calendar. But they’re not coming. They just can’t seem to make it here.”
Seems like a good point. In fact, according to the DA the Quaids are physically still in Texas, so there was never a chance of them showing in the first place!
And why are they so afraid of showing up in court? Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department Detective Rod Forney has a theory, “They’re afraid to show up because they will be arrested,” he tells RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview. “And they’re absolutely right. That’s exactly what would happen. There’s no telling what is going through their minds right now.”
One thing is for certain everyone involved in the Quaid fiasco appears to be getting pretty sick of their antics.
The DA for one is becoming more and more frustrated. An eyewitness at the court tells RadarOnline.com, “Lee Carter was on the phone with Evi and she was screaming and ranting at him. He spoke to her like someone calming down a mentally ill person. He just kept repeating the same thing over and over again. You can tell that he’s really beginning to tire of all the drama.
“He advised her that if they come to California they need to contact a bail bondsman and an attorney because they will be arrested, no way around that.”
