The ever crazy antics of Randy and Evi Quaid show no signs of declining, and unfortunately they actually seem to be increasing with time.

In fact, according to their terrified former private investigator, Becky Altringer, the Quaids’ behavior is turning ever more erratic, threatening and, Altriger fears, potentially violent, causing her to file for a restraining order against her former employers.

Altringer filed for a restraining order against both Quaids on Wednesday at Los Angeles Superior Court, Pomona, CA, after what Altringer claims has been a past year of harassment by the Marfa Texas based couple.

DOCUMENTS: Altringer’s Restraining Order Request

“Randy and Evi are bullies and criminals. They get away with sh** because Randy is Randy Quaid,” Altringer told in an exclusive interview. “I’ve been in this business for over 15 years and I have never seen the s*** I have seen with the Quaids. I can’t find justice in our judicial system so filing the restraining order has been the only justice I am getting.”

As exclusively reported, Altringer received threatening phone calls from Randy and Evi on Monday morning. In one voicemail, Randy screams obscenities at her and says he’s going to “take her down.” In her message, Evi accuses Altringer of being a thief and of stalking them.

The Quaids have also been allegedly threatening a former friend of theirs who claims the embattled couple owe her money. Anke Magussen told that she’s know Randy and Evi “for 20 years” and that Evi’s personality has “definitely changed over the years. She is not the same person that she was.” Anke goes on to say that she is “terrified” of the couple.

In her restraining order request, Altringer asks that the Quaids be ordered to stay away from her, as well as others in her household, in person and at their home, as well as their vehicles. She asks that the Quaids be prevented from contact via telephone, email, postal mail or in person and that they be restrained from any type of attack.

The judge initially denied granting the order, stating there is insufficient evidence to prove imminent danger to Altringer. The judge did set a date for a hearing though on February 19th, where Altringer will be able to lay out her case for the restraining order to be put in place.

However, Altringer has to come up with filing fees of $700 in order to proceed, a sum she’s not sure she will be able to muster. “I requested the judge to waive the fees but the judge refused without even talking to me,” Altringer explains to “I appealed his decision today.

“If the Quaids don’t appear in person or respond by February 19th my restraining order will be put in place for 3 years. However, first I have to find the Quaids to have them served.”

Having received criticism from many for making her troubles with the Quaids public, Altringer responds, telling that she feels she’s had little choice in the matter, and that she is genuinely terrified by the Quaids’ behavior and many threats. “Randy is a well known famous person and people are scared, or don’t want to cross him,” Altringer says. “I’m a nobody compared to him and I feel I have to take my story to the masses to be heard. I feel that I can’t let them get away with bullying, threatening and intimidating people just because of who they are. I have to fight back in any way I can.”

A call to the Quaids was not returned. In other legal news, the Quaids are due back in a Santa Barbara courthouse in March to face felony charges relating to unpaid hotel bills.
