Randy and Evi Quaid were back in court on Monday to appear for a preliminary hearing on their individual felony charges of defrauding an innkeeper. The case was continued to April 12.
“Basically we weren’t ready to settle,” District Attorney Arnie Tolks told RadarOnline.com. “It takes two sides to every case and at this point we weren’t ready to resolve it.”
The wacky couple arrived early at the Santa Barbara Superior Court House and we’re told things got a little dicey inside. Unlike their appearance in December, in which Randy was sporting a bushy beard, Randy arrived clean shaven in a suit, and Evi wore black slacks and a matching military style jacket.
In keeping with their usual bizarre behavior, the Quaids brought Randy’s Golden Globe award to court! Evi was photographed with it, although there was no explanation why they brought it. (Randy won it for best actor in a mini-series or motion picture made for TV in 1988 for LBJ: The Early Years).
A source tells RadarOnline.com that just prior to the hearing a process server appeared and served the couple with three separate lawsuits, prompting Evi to almost lose her cool.
“The process server walked up to them and Evi told her to get away from her,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “She was pi**ed. So the server went up to the bailiff and the bailiff walked over to them and told them they had to take the paperwork.”
The lawsuits were filed by the Quaid’s former private investigator, Becky Altringer, RadarOnline.com has confirmed. We spoke to Altringer who told us, “I’m just so happy because for so long I haven’t been able to find them.”
Altringer said she is suing the couple for $17,200, which includes damages to the mobile home she says they trashed as well as money Altringer says the Quaids never paid her.
